Finally i am back on posting something that used to be the hot topic when i started blogging – ” ORKUT” . I guess its been more than 7-8 months since i posted something about orkut. Orkut has officially launched 7 new themes – ORKUT BLUE , BEACH, WINTER, AUTUMN, SPRING TIME ,COUNTRY SIDE AND JR-FREINDLY GAINT . It took 1 week more for these themes to get activated on my account. My freinds had got it earlier than me so u might get the theme a bit late too . HOW to change the theme –

  1. Go to profile-> edit
  2. Along side the tabs like personal ,professional and other tabs there would be one named theme .
  3. Select the theme and click on update.

This is how my orkut account looks like after changing the theme

  14. How to make more friends online to choose the right friend in online. I will try to make friends in online community websites like orkut, chokut and many more but I could not reach the real friends. Now I am a right position to reach more people in orkut and chokut and getting more friends in online.

    Online dating is not easy but is giving you more opportunity for making friends in online and also boys or girls and man or woman needs good online community websites in India. All the Indian friends making more friendship in online.

  38. hey.. i ve tagged u..! pl. c my blog for details!

  39. I got back to Orkut very recently! Saw those themes scraps somewhere..I think they look hideous and that I’ll soon turn blind (as if I’m not already blind 😐 )

  40. @ nikhil ..
    i am thinking what to write… never reviewed a book before 😉

    @ amit

    @ ruhi..
    those scraps are spam they dont work..these are the original ones

  41. Just go to orkut homepage.
    On the upper tab, hit “change theme”

    Much simpler, no?

  42. I think the Orkut Themes are obnoxious, heavy.. and no GOOD! 😛

  43. @ raghav.
    yeah..thats simpler 😉
    i noticed that..just dint mention …dint strike at that time..

    @ amyth
    they are too kiddish…though the one i am using is a bit better…not that childish..
    and yeah its heavy..i would get back to normal form once i get bored of this 🙂

  44. wasshappening

    I see everybody with jatang themes on orkut these days…Appreciate a very few…don like the actors on them…Yours is nice!I dont think will change mine tho many of my friends are insisting me to.
    About the theme being uploaded and shown after 1 Week!!!…My Profile photo once got activated after 24 hours of me uploading it!!!…
    This was when Orkut was newly introduced…No cribbing…i still love orkut! 🙂

  45. @ wasshappening
    welcome to my blog..
    those themes actors are fake …
    i gues si will get bored too and eventually remove the theme unless they get something more exciting..
    orkut is changing everyday..u can upload 1000 pics..add applications like in face book and now themes..god knows whats next.. 😛

    and yeah drop in ur web address while commenting..

  46. But none of those themes look nice.Dont u feel so? I mean, the classic orkut looked much better.Also, the page takes its own sweet time to open, doesnt it?

  47. @ vimal
    yes..orkut’s default one is the ultimate one…but i had got bored of tried this..weill get back to normal one soon 🙂
    and yeah they dont look that nice..the only one i found ok was the one i am using it

  48. Awesome….thank god you wrote that it is in pipeline….I thought you’re also oe of those irritating people who are stupid enough to click on such fake scraps which in turn scraps all other friends!!
    So do you have any idea about the dateline for the theme launch…….? And the theme idea will be the only exception with Orkut-otherwise its blindly copying Facebook.

  49. well,i i have got my theme a long time back…u will get urs too..
    and yes those fake scraps are irritatting..
    i have to delete minimmum of 3-4 such scraps from my scrapbook daily..
    insane …people are insane..
    worse , i get same scraps from same people again and agian.. 😆

  50. to change the low bandwidth option. goto setting – general- low bandwith-show normal orkut settings
