I thought that today, to be a bit more Brazilian, I would check out the social networking site popular with Brazilians – Orkut. But I was a bit late to the game.
Orkut is owned by Google and was very popular with followers in Brazil and India. Orkut’s layout is much different than Facebook, and I’ll admit as a Facebook user, I had a hard time navigating. And that’s despite the fact that Orkut is much simpler. My first clue that Orkut was no longer up-and-coming was that all the Brazilians I searched for had last been on the site circa 2008.
Then, I found an article stating that Facebook finally overcame Orkut in number of Brazilian users last year. (Facebook Finally Beats Google’s Orkut … in Brazil)
Oh well. At least I wasn’t missing anything.
