Orkut accounts linked to Google accounts

Written by on September 13, 2005 in General - 72 Comments

Orkut users will now all be linked to a google account. All orkut users must now use Google Accounts to sign in. You’ll have to enter your orkut username and password to link your orkut login to your Google Account. Once its done so, you’ll be able to use your Google Account to sign in to orkut and numerous other Google services.

Orkut and google accounts

I think I have already talked about this as what Google is trying to do. From the social network they can know everything about you : age, country, ethnicity, passions, job, … and then linked to the other google services they can know who is searching for what, what interest who … etc ! That’s google and only google can do this !

As you may notice orkut privacy and TOS have changed. The FAQ explain what’s new but don’t seems to say anything. Just mysterious answers, you have to migrate, you have to use google accounts instead of orkut ones, and look to the answer of “Why is orkut migrating to Google Accounts?

A Google Account functions as a master Google login, made up of a single email address and password. By migrating your orkut account to a Google Account, you can use your Google Account to sign in to Google services that support it, such as Google Groups, Gmail, News Alerts, and Froogle.

The answer is to “What is a google account ?” !! Can someone understand anything here ?

    Hi noor, we are not affiliate service of google.
    But for orkut, you have to login first with your Orkut username, then setup the google account you want to use. Try again it should works.

    Greetings Genteleman !
    I have two Orkut accounts, the first one is(search word) Dashrath THE ROCK…
    the second is (search word)Dashrath Kshatriya.
    I am able to access the first one but NOT the second.
    My intention is to delete the second account, but I believe that,obviously, unless one can acess
    the account with the username and password, the account cannot be deleted.
    I mostly use same password for ‘any’ account(s), so my question would that is it possible for your ‘Orkut Team’ to help me with just the username of my Orkut’s second account?
    Kind regards
    The Rock

    sir, When I logged in Orkut only white screen appears and in the menu it is saying that it is redirecting. But nothing appears, but there is a security issue I think. A lock is appearing on the menu and everytime I log into gmail it is asking for security. A message saying your certificate is expired appears. Please help me out to solve this issue.
