Google has announced the decision to shut down the once popular social networking site Orkut on September 30, 2014. Creating a new account and the Orkut app is being taken down starting today. The social networking had already lost it's sheen long back when Facebook emerged and escalated to the top unchallenged.
Google plus gets the push
Google finally has decided to back it's ubiquitous Google Plus and it was a bit surprising why it kept Orkut alive all these years. Now, that Orkut is officially getting closed, the early birds in social networking sites will not be shocked rather will get a nostalgia thinking about it.
One of the new version of Orkut introduced 4 years back but unfortunately failed to take off in the expected way. Bye bye Orkut....
