New Features added in orkut in 2007 that changed the looks,feel and acceptance of orkut.

As all of you know that Orkut has completed its complete 4 years in Jan 2008 as a Giant in the field of social networking with global coverage and acceptance.

Year 2007 was a big year in the history of orkut, this year so many features added, flaws removed and security of profiles increased that now we can say that orkut is a true, safe and secure social networking site.

Now I am going to mention some of the big changed that orkut has seen in last year.

1) Jan 2008: Orkut on SMS in Brazil
Notification of new scrap, friend request, new message and much more through SMS on your mobile 24x7. Also a new Mobile tab in settings page (Working only for Brazilian users right now)
