Google releases Orkut for iPhone, but do you really care?

Google releases Orkut for iOS, a Google-owned social network

| Social Networking News | Posted: Jan 19, 2012 6:23 am

I have to admit, I scour the entire interwebs for news, virtually each and every day and up until now, I did not even know about Orkut. Orkut is a Google-owned social network, that gets overshadowed by its own rival, Google+ and other players such as Facebook. Orkut is still massively popular in India and Brazil, where more than 80-percent of its 66 million active users come from, as of October 2011.
