Everyone remembers Orkut. Closed in 2014, it continues in the memory of the American, and Google ended up launching a page to make available the entire collection of the communities of the extinct social network. However, this resource was also buried in May this year, bringing together all the contents of unforgettable communities, such as “I hate waking up early.” Now someone has decided to bring Orkut back from the dead.
It works? It works, but you have to be very careful. It’s not yet known where the site comes from, but it certainly has no link with Google. In addition, if you try to access it, it will be displayed by the browser as a potential phishing threat, capable of stealing the data you provide in filling out your registration.
Even more dangerous is the fact that this site allows you to sign up using Facebook – which makes it even more obvious that there is no link with the original Orkut creator and makes it even more dangerous if it is a malicious site.
Probably after the comeback, the site added a note on its home page:
“Orkut.li has no link with Google. Create a new account to access. Rest assured, our site contains no viruses and will not steal your data. Our goal is to help meet new people and build new friendships.”
That said, if you are curious and miss the old social network forum system, it is best to create a new email and use a password that you do not use anywhere else.
It has the same layout and features that most of us know and use for a long time. In fact, it adopts the older interface, rather than the changes that Google added in the last years that the original Orkut was active.
In the process of registering, you will answer questions that Orkut did, and then you can add friends, send scraps, read your luck of the day, access communities and edit the profile.
There are already some people creating multiple communities. None of them still have more than one member, simply because that is still not possible. This option still appears disabled, as well as the ability to create new topics.
But if you’re going to venture into the “new” Orkut, just explore a little and leave your profile ready, in case it gets to work completely.
What do you think? Is it worth going back in time and using Orkut? It certainly should be interesting to see the old social network stuffed with the new memes. Access the site and be sure to take the security measures described above.
