Orkut Showing ‘Adsense Leaderboard’ Ads In Photo Albums!

Ads on Photos in Orkut Albums

Picture says it all..Orkut has started displaying the biggest possible ad dimension possible with Google’s Monetizing Program – Google Adsense on pages with photos in orkut albums.

This is highly unlike Google and the way it integrates sponsored links in to it’s services – Take Google’s Search Result Pages or Gmail for best examples.

I will have to say that I smell desperation in the Orkut camp of finding effective ways to make revenue out of Orkut which is obvious since running a social networking giant demands a fortune or probably, orkut is trying to change the conception of the fact that Social Networking Websites + Advertising = Disaster for Advertisers, by placing ads on very premium spots.

Tell us how you feel about the ads being shown above the photos in orkut albums. If you are unhappy with it than need not worry, we’ll post a nice solution to block these ads in coming posts.. ;)
