Orkut Launches Private Scraps – Any Takers?

Facebook was recently in a big mess over privacy and Orkut is probably trying to gain some user love there.

Today, Orkut has launched private scraps feature enabling users to send scrap just to their friend(s) – the scrap being invisible to the outside world.


To keep something secret, just send a private scrap to your friends, and just those people selected will see it. Yep, just them! Recipients can also reply, creating a completely private conversation. – blog

Orkut is taking the privacy game too seriously and each feature/piece of your content now has a privacy level. Orkut has also enabled auto-sharing of your YouTube activities on Orkut.

So do all these privacy settings bring back the users? What else should Google do to Save Orkut?
