Guess what? I opened Orkut Plus! today to find the most relevant ad one can ever see here. It was an advertisement promoting orkut. You don’t have to solve a sudoku puzzle to know who is promoting orkut. Very likely, Google is uncomfortable with the growing popularity of it’s rival Facebook and looks like an attempt to woo more and more audience (especially US users) by using it’s adwords service.
We have seen orkut advertising and promoting it’s latest features and other google services on orkut but this is something new to me. This is first of it’s kind of direct advertising by google for orkut. Does this gesture hint on any uneasiness in the Orkut Office?
