Look Ma, Yet Another Social Networking Site

What do you know, there’s one more social networking site out there — orkut. It’s a Google project, which is about all I know of it since it’s another invitation-only community. Anyone out there care to enlighten us on why the world needs another one of these sites? [Seen on Slashdot]

This was posted on the Google Weblog (a blog about, not by, Google):


"A Google engineer has created a social-networking site (ala Friendster) in his spare time. Invitation only.

I got invited. My review: a slightly-improved Friendster clone written in MS Visual Studio .NET."
