I recently posted a tutorial to add orkut share button to WordPress and blogger blogs. Using that tutorial you can manually add orkut share button to your WordPress based blogs but if you don’t want to mes with the coding of your theme then here is a WordPress plugin to add ‘Orkut Share’ button to your blog. ‘Share on Orkut’ WordPress plugin is released by OrkutPlus.
Orkut has recently released orkut Share API for its users. Orkut users can now share and promote interesting content from the Internet with their orkut friends easily with just few clicks. The shared content will appear in their activity updates.
Facebook users already have this feature. Most of the bloggers and webmasters use Facebook share option to share and promote their content on Facebook. Its one of the best methods to promote their content. It seems Orkut is following Facebook in looks and in features too.
Add Orkut Share Button To WordPress Blogs
If you are using WordPress as your blogging platform, here is detailed tutorial to add orkut share button to your blog :Go to theme editor of your wordpress blog and open header.php file. Now copy and paste the following code in header.php file
Few days back Orkut introduced its new version with new features and faster browsing. Orkut’s new version is still available for selected users only. If someone in your friend list has got access to the new orkut then you can ask him/her to invite you for the new design or you can participate in the contest here. Recently I have got an invitation from my friend Rajesh Kanuri. I have managed to get some invitations to the new orkut and I am giving away these invitations to TricksDaddy readers.
Orkut is one of the popular social networking sites in India as well as in Brazil. Advertisements are the only way for Google to keep Orkut running. From the past few weeks, you may have noticed that Orkut has started showing ads on top of the pages. Earlier it was used to show ads below friend’s bar. That was somewhat avoidable but now it looks too ugly.
After getting good response for the mobile version of Orkut, orkut team has now released a orkut mobile application. You will get a great Orkut experience with this application on your mobile phones. Orkut Mobile App can be installed on all the java enabled mobile phones.
Here are the screenshots of the Orkut Mobile App:
Some Orkut users are getting an error when they try to send friend requests. This error message says Adding friends Service is temporarily Disabled. This problem can occur when you try to send too many friend requests in a short duration of time. Once you are blocked, you will have to wait for about one week before you can send new friend requests.
