Rebecca Blood: 13 Ways to Save Orkut. I was heavily into Orkut for about a day and a half, but I haven’t been back again since then. Orkut did enable me to get in touch with a guy who I hadn’t spoken to or emailed in over 10 years, but beyond that I haven’t gotten much out of it. I haven’t done much with LinkedIn, either, but I have relayed a number of requests for other people, so it seems like some people are getting use out of it.
