Orkut went out of beta and nobody cared

The most recent issue of the Google Friends newsletter contained an explosive piece of information:

Finally, orkut no longer requires an invite — anyone can sign up for an account.

Sorry, Google, but nobody cares anymore. Orkut was in elitist beta for too long. Now social networks like MySpace have taken the lead. Better luck next time.

  1. Wow, did Google miss the boat on this one!

    I’m a bit surprised that Orkut took so long to come out of beta.

    I guess the Google plan is “forget about developing it, drop billions on acquiring it”
