Orkut vs Facebook

Posted by Kunal on October 18, 2010

A story told by my gmail inbox. Orkut’s popularity peaked in 2006 when I just got onto Facebook. Since then, Orkut declined sharply and it has pretty much died since 2009. Also of interest are the spikes in activity in the month of March, which can be explained by my birthday falling in that month. I used a fantastic visualization extension called Graph Your Inbox for this post.

  1. Interestings…will try out the extension on my mail box and see what it gives :D

  2. Facebook and orkut. Both are social networking sites however facebook is one of the leading social networking site in the world because of its proper presentation, technology and best quality games. Orkut must need to improve.

  3. The political crisis has deeper implications for the whole of Malaysian society. On one had the Barisan Nasional has lost its bearings under the pretext of the Malay Dilemma-Hence the division and erosion of a united Malaysia began. In one aspect it is important to have a balanced leadership rather than a radical leadership. UMNO must convince the nation where their philosophy lies. From the past 20 years or so UMNO has shed its balance and self respect. UMNO needs to do some real soul searching and decide its future direction. The fact remains that Malaysia is Multi-cultural, Multi-racial and Multi-religious. The nations must be saved from two Main detractors (1) Chauvinism and (2) Fanaticism.
