Google Will Shut Down its Orkut in September

In September 2004, Google has launched Orkut social networking site to help users to meet old and new friends and to maintain existing relationships. Orkut was one of the most visited websites and more number of users available in India and Brazil. Earlier Orkut is hosted in California, but later on it was managed and fully operated in Brazil. This decision is because of more number of users belongs to Brazil. In India there were more number of users for Orkut from starting and first time Orkut has introduced various numbers of colorful themes which are available only in India, Brazil and Pakistan.

Google has announced officially that Orkut will be shut down on September 30, 2014. At that point, users won’t be able to login in anymore and also photo export to Google+ will be unavailable. Orkut was one of the Google’s first social networking website which had good reputation in India and Brazil. When Facebook finally overtook the social networking market, Orkut was not able to hold on quite as long. Still 50% of users are available in Brazil, 20 % are available in India and 18% are there in US.

Starting today, all the existing users have 3 months of period to migrate all the data out from their social profile. It is no wonder that Google currently wants all of its users to use Google+ instead of Orkut. But Google says that as YouTube, Blogger and Google+ have taken off, the growth of these communities has outdated the Orkut’s growth. Finally Google confirms it has to keep special focus on its energy and resources on making these other special platforms as amazing as possible for every user who uses them. It is confirmed that Sign-ups for new accounts have been disabled. In addition of the closure of Orkut’s web version, Google is planning to remove the mobile version from the Google play store and App store soon.
