Orkut is not only a hit among the internet community but nowadays orkut has also manged to get a place in the headlines of every Top news organization and becoming a center for controversy..
Orkut is clearly an online hub for the internet freaks mostly between the ages from 15 to 30 .Though it allows only users above the age of 18 ,they dont have control over that.i have even seen children studying 7th class having accounts… 🙂 .. People are so much addicted to orkut is that they can’t live without accessing it for a single day ..for some people it causes even nervous breakdowns.. With thousands of people joining every day and an easy way of communticating with people of common interest via “communities” scraps , its easy to misuse the technology but thats part and parcel of it..everything will have have its pros and cons..
One lady lady in behrain has filed a case to ban the whole orkut as someone impersonated her as a prostitute. In india one guy filed a case as somebody used foul language against the maratha king shivaji. Shiv sena is strongly protesting and working too hard to ban it in india as it contained words against its cheif ,then there is always a problem of sexually explicit material which evokes large hatred and cases like this keeps on adding everyday .But ,Is it a solution ?? Will banning do anything good…i believe not it will only add an economic loss to big organization which owns it and also ,to the internet community folks who eagerly participate in various kinds of information exchange through communities..Though orkut can be a colossal waste of time still i am a firm supporter of orkut..and i feel that the percentage of people misusing it will be far more less than the percentage of them using it efficiently.
Its quite queer that the advantage to majority of the users can be compromised for some lunatics who tend to goof around misusing it. and as far as the sexually explicit material is concerned i guess there’s a lot of impurity outside orkut which needs to be sorted out first..
So i feel strongly than Banning is not the solution at all..Well,thats my view..u can comment urs below..
