Sex chat network social background checks for online dating
Orkut was a social networking website owned and operated by Google.
The service was designed to help users meet new and old friends and maintain existing relationships.
On November 8, 2007, Orkut greeted its Indian users Happy Diwali by allowing them to change their Orkut look to a Diwali-flavored reddish theme.
On April Fools' Day 2008, Orkut temporarily changed its name on its webpage to yogurt, apparently as a prank.
Each member was also able to customize their profile preferences and restrict information that appears on their profile from their friends and/or others.
Another feature was that any member can add any other member on Orkut to his/her "Crush List".
The website was named after its creator, Google employee Orkut Büyükkökten.
The allegation is based on the presence of 9 identical bugs in Orkut that also existed in In Circles.Ning was a more direct competitor, as it allowed for the creation of social networks similar to Orkut's "communities".An Orkut user was also able to add videos to their profile from either You Tube or Google Video with the additional option of creating either restricted or unrestricted polls for polling a community of users.Moreover, in case someone wanted to keep some information on their profile private, Orkut added an opt-out button on the settings page.Scraps were also HTML-enabled letting users post videos or pictures.
