hmmm..uh..uh….ok So Here’s a post which i am using as a means to answer one of the most absurd and useless questions i have been asking to myself over the last few months.
WHY AM I STILL USING ORKUT ????
To be frank ,i have almost stopped using orkut unless somebody pings me up i dont scrap anybody ,well hot chicks are exceptions ofcourse.Considering the fact that once i used to be addicted to it ,i am really happy that finally,i am able to control my obsession with orkut.I am no longer sending any anonymous freinds request 😛 ,No longer searching for my old friends ,no longer sending messages like “How are you” ,” how u doing ” and certainly i am not searching for any porn videos nowadays 🙂 .Now you must be wondering too why the hell is he is orkut ??? Well,thats whjat i am trying to write it out here..Honestly i dont have even a single reason now , So i dont know what i am going to write here justifying my Shameless act of staying in orkut when others are going gaga over facebook .But something would Certainly come into my mind as i start writing it 😛 So please bear with this poor wordpress blog if the post turns up a bit gibberish and shabby.
Ok so here we GO..
- FREINDS .Every now and then i stumble across a new site which claims itself to be a social networking site. i get mails from my friends ,daily , yes daily, inviting me to those all useless sites. I mean isn’t one (orkut ) enough to do all the crappy things. However , facebook is gaining popularity these days and it has become a fashion statement with the youth in india ( i have one profile in that too) .. it looks an alean thing for me so until i get accustomed to facebook i sould better stick around with orkut after all it was my second love..never mind the first one 😀 .i am least bothered to discuss it here .
- FRIENDS. Being away from my childhood friends the only way to be in touch (not very often 🙂 ) is through this orkut and there ‘s is no way i can call all of them to facebook or any other site for that matter, cuz before all of them get shifted to another platform i would be sick of that site too.SO i guess one(orkut) is enough.
- EVERYTHING FREE. How can i get links for downlaoding softwares absolutely for free when they are supposed be bought for some 50 $ .Orkut is the best way for getting anything in web..you request it and experts 🙂 would provide you that..just anything 🙂 .
- USEFULL DISCUSSIONS .Where else can i have discussion on various stratergies on how to make 50 palladins in first 15 minutes of the game AGE OF EMPIRES or where else can i have tips for mastering counter strike :
- WHERE IS PORN. Most people quit Orkut considering it as a colossal waste of time and also because they are too much bothered whether the orkut is clean or not .PORN is something that cant be regulated how hard you try.It can only be ignored.For those who have this reason of shifting to some other site ,certainly that can’t be justified.
- I AM SECURE . Well, security is not an issue in orkut .Yes, people have been trying to hack each other’s profile but unless you do something silly there is no way of getting hacked .People tend to get hacked by scripts claiming to increase ur fan list or things like that. I too was one of the fools in that category but i have learnt a lot from it.Infact i also learned how to hack ?? but that was more out of Curiousity rather than for some silly vendetta or any other bad motive. FACT IS that no site in the world can be hack proof .
- NO TIME.I have had hard time in reducing my obsession with orkut .SO once i join some other site i am sure i would get addicted to that too .Unfortunately i have no time for that so fortunately i have to stick around with orkut .
- Its getting really tough for me to jot down 10 points :P. so this will be the last i guess.yeah i know that i have written 10 points on the heading,but what the big deal.This is my blog,my post, so i will stop with this last one 🙂 .. i cant get a better profile anywhere else than what i have in orkut. Not that its fantastic but because it look a lot of time building that profile with all useless facts about me formatted in a special font 😀 .
So i have got myself cleared that “quitting orkut” is not at all in my mind for at least sometime now.

I don’t have any reasons to use Orkut either. I was also hooked onto it and had 100 friends or so but it never really worked for me because somehow I can’t send “How are you’s?” to random chicks. That meant I had almost all guys in my profile and all of them school friends. That’s not very useful because anyway school mein to mill hi jaate hain.
The benefit however was that there are a lot more people on Orkut than there’ll be on Facebook simply because Orkut has been around for much longer and is easier to use than Facebook. 10 years from now maybe I’ll use Orkut to keep in touch with my bhoole bisre school yaars. Though it sucks that I’ll have to make another profile and add the school people there.
Another thing I love about Orkut is the cleanliness and that’s because it doesn’t allow HTML and stuff. That way, it’s pretty uniform and fast. Though they’re slowly destroying it by allowing photos and stuff to be embedded.
10 years from now..thats to far..i srely would forget orkut by then…more over orkut would blast before that..due to insufficient bandwidth.. 😛
All the links work. They keep updating the links:
All the best. I think I’ve made it asier for you to quit Orkut now 😉
They update their links regularly. I think now I’ve made it easier for you to quit Orkut. 😉
because of your linnk .ur comments had gone in spam section.
fortunatly i looked my spam section today.
otherwise ur links would have been lost..
and yeah thanks a lot…
so i have one less reason for stayin in orkut..
7 more to go 😛
just checked out the site..
its great ..thanks for sharing..
Oh Okay! Else I would have had to email you and let you know that I did comment-twice. 🙂
I downloaded MS Office Enterprise Edition 2007 just two days back (full version) and it works like a charm. You can even download movies and stuff from there. But I use it for downloading softwares only.
The only reason why I am still there on Orkut is when I need to catch up with some old classmate, I know where to find him/her 🙂
yeah i had seen ur profile in orkut once..very less friends everything private 😛
yeah i saw that site..it was just wonderfull…thanks a lot again 🙂
well as u said… there were lot of community sites nurturing everyday and some guys joining everything(juz guess for what) and sending invitation… but i think orkut is enough… hw many account can we have and manage… 8)
yeah.thats what i wanted to say…
i have even forgot the sites which i have joined in the past/..
I think it’s OK with one networking site. The problem comes when people begin to create profiles in practically all of the networking sites, and new ones keep popping up every now and then. 🙂
Oh. 100+ friends is very less? 😛
yeah ..its funny….you open you mails and what u get is invitaitons from about 10 networking sites daily…
evrybody is buying a domian and creating one.. 😛
i really cant manage more than one..
well,for me it is too less..
idont remember how many u had but seemed to be less ..
have that ,many just from my college 🙂 and then what about the chicks i have added..they too count … 😛 ..
Well yeah compared to many others, I know it’s less. Anyway I have not even added some of my friends in Orkut. Have lost the interest to hunt them down & add since we are anyway in touch through phone, chat.
>the chicks i have added
Guess they must be the max. no in your friends list 😛 😛
Btw did you use some lines like the scrap I had blogged about, to get chicks to add you to their friends list? 😛
they were … 😛 ..but i deleted many …now i have only those girls who became quite close to me through orkut…
and believe me, i have never used and i cant imagine trying something like that…..infact those girls who would fall for that wouldn’t fit for me.. 😀
I just now had a look at your Orkut profile. Cha you dont even hav 300 friends? 😛
Btw, everytime I log into my old blog to check the new blog hits, I seem to be commenting in your blog without realizing that I am logged into wordpress!
i had 450 friends .deleted many..mostly girls 🙂
yeah u do everytime the same thing
Brothers in arms we are…
and we’re the kings of the 10 reason’s why i did this or why we should’nt do this…or blah blah blah…..
Nice blog u got here…
And the post is one wat every one has thought…specially the part before the 10 reasons started…..mate trust me, i m really bored of orkut now..cant figure out why i stilll use it, but i do. 🙂
And yeah i toohad around 400 friends…many of them unknown chicks…..but i’m bored now, deleted all of whom i dont know.
And yeah the junta doesnt want to shif base to facebook either…
this means that we’ll have to stick to orkut for a while..unless we’re considered too old for orkuting…
nice post… 😀
he he… yes we are ..hope we get some topics to right 10 reasons for that.. 😀
glad that u liked my blog..
facebook is better without us i guess.. 😛
thanks for visiting
agreed. agreed. agreed. in fact i too stopped orkutting, unless someone pings me…
let me guess… hmm… because of pressure from boss 😛
