Orkut Scrapbook will soon become the most annoying feature of Orkut unless Google does something to prevent the scrap spam.
When you mouse over any name in the Gmail standard message view, it pops a small window that will lets your write an email to that person, start a new chat session or even find “recent conversations” with that person.
Orkut has a little spying feature called “profile visits” that automatically shows a list of people who have recently viewed your profile page on Orkut.
Have a question you’d like to ask a friend or group of friends on orkut? Use this feature to seek and share advice, recommendations, knowledge or plans in private.
orkut offers an automatic transliteration option in the scrapbook that converts Roman characters to the DevanÄgarÄ« characters used in Hindi. This lets you type Hindi words phonetically in English script and still have them appear in their correct alphabet. Note: this is not the same as translation — it’s the sound of the words that are converted from one alphabet to the other, not their meaning.
