Updates From My Friends Gets More In Orkut

The month of June seems to be very busy for Orkut. They are releasing a new feature every week. First, they started off with Orkut themes, then photo-tagging and status update features and two days ago, they added the ability for users to customize their profiles by drag and drop. Features sound more like Facebook-ish, right? That’s what they have been doing!

Another Facebook-alike feature they have added is that you are now able to see your friend’s status updates in Updates From My Friends on your homepage. As Priya Mandawat said on the orkut Blog:

Now you can tell your friends what you are doing or how you’re feeling right this minute by changing your status message on your profile and letting it show up in your friends’ homepages.

Updates From My Friends already shows everything from new photos and videos that your friends upload, to testimonials they receive, to changes they make on their profiles.

If you don’t want your friends to see your updates, you can turn it off from your Privacy Settings. And if you don’t what to see anyone else’s updates, you can select the “don’t show updates from my friends” option.
