Don't they already have a social network named Orkut?
I thought the same thing till I read this:
Although Orkut is less popular in the United States than competitors Facebook and MySpace, it is one of the most visited websites in India and Brazil.[3] As of April 2010, 48.0% of Orkut's users are from Brazil, followed by India with 39.2% and United States with 2.2%.
Maybe they'll have better luck this time, lol. I was on youtube and found only a handful of videos in English on Orkut, and a lot of the comments were along the lines of "hm...i've never heard of Orkut."


be careful not to choose the "Post Recent Searches" option

I would not be surprised it a Twitter style messages that contain links to the websites i am browsing or recently searched for queries.

Could be mighty embarrassing for some
