There has been some really interesting discussions going on at the official orkut community and I believe every orkut user should join it and participate in the discussions which may change they way you use orkut since orkut staff is seriously looking at suggestions contributed by the members of the community.
For instance, they ask their members to suggest them features which the’ll like to see on orkut. The Orkut How to Videos topic is very helpful for beginners. They are always up with something exciting so you should just join the community and check it out more often and participate with your valued suggestions.
