    How to join Orkut

    Are you ready for the big question “How do I join” In keeping with the exclusivity rules you cannot just join. You have to have a friend who will vouch for you. How is that for exclusive? The thought process behind this is keeping your network ear open for folks who already are members. They will need to refer you if you ever want to get in. Orkut’s theory is that eventually someone will let you in.

    There are some websites with people who “Blog” and are willing to let you in., also another owned website has many blogger’s who will help you get your foot in the door.
