Orkut has rolled out a new feature through which it makes it easier for Orkut users who also use Google+ to share their updates with their Orkut friends by simply linking their profiles.
When first you link your profiles, your Orkut profile photo and name will be changed to your Google+ photo and name. In addition, you will be able to share all your public Google+ posts with your Orkut friends. Your Google+ posts which are shared among limited audience or specific circles will remain on Google+ only and will be subject to your privacy settings. As a result, linking your profiles will also make it easier for your Orkut friends to find you on Google+.
“Linking your Orkut and Google+ profiles is optional and you can decide whether you want to do it or not. In addition, even after you link them, you can decide if you want to share your public posts with your Orkut friends or not just by accessing your Orkut settings”. said Diego Fernandes, Google Engineer on Orkut official blog.
Google is pushing hard to promote its new social network initiative Google + among its users. Google is now slowly trying to integrate Google+ to its older social networking platform Orkut which is still popular among users in India and Brazil.
