Orkut is going…finally! I sadly deleted my account in 2008 or something (worst decision of my life obviously) but have fond memories that no other social networking site could ever replicate! What are those memories? What are those 5 things we will miss most about Orkut? Find out and don’t forget to add your points too!
Also, don’t tell me you don’t miss Orkut or you weren’t a part of that brigade, it was where most of us began to tYpE LyK dIs.

1) Scraps

Of course you remember this! Of course you miss this! I mean life isn’t the same, because there’s no one to send us creepy scraps anymore. This makes me rather sad. Kids who don’t know what the amazing Orkut was all about will never understand what I’m talking about, but most of you’ll know by ‘Scraps’ I don’t mean scraps of paper or metal scraps for that matter. Scraps on Orkut are equivalent to messages your friends write on your Facebook wall and my goodness… these scraps were hilarious! Why? Because any random person could send scraps to you without being your ‘fraaand’! Sometimes I think I’d have preferred getting metal scraps than reading some of these messages on Orkut.

This flower, on the other hand, completely makes my day.

2) Testimonials

Paragraphs and paragraphs of our best friends writing about how awesome we were! I once had to pay two of them 50 bucks each for like 2 paragraphs. Now on Facebook, we only have people sharing viral things (like this article is surely going to be) ;-). My best friends write mean stuff on my wall and nothing else, ever! Whatevz.

Never got this though. Why wasn’t I anyone’s ‘Sweetu‘? Why?

3) The rise of the shady men

Give credit where it’s due. The ‘hey babez what a beauty’ and ‘sex body’ brigade began on Orkut and are now relegated to the ‘other’ side of your Facebook inbox.
