ORKUT BOTHERS

Orkut is one big boon to help track down old acquaintances and keep track of current ones. The concept of communities, friend groups, scraps - it's all cool.

However, there is one feature Orkut really needs to discontinue: the ability to change one's own display name. When your friend list is over two hundred and you want to search for a particular friend in your list, there is no quick way if the person has a display image of a vague illustration, a car or hopeless scenery and a display name like "Lara has retired", "Saurav da is back", or some philosophical crap about life/love. Sheesh!

Also, a special brickbat for those who use the scrapbook feature as an instant messenger! What pain and inconvenience (has become so fashionable!) when there are so many instant messengers doing their jobs so well!

Oh yeah, the change in display name can be so painful. Wats the point in doin so? Are they updating us abt their current interests/status or is it plain drawing of attention?

Ramya said...

That really is very absurd and irritating ! And most of them bother to update it with what is currently happening in their lives. And sometimes its in place of their last name !

Narayanan said...

I do agree with the display name change annoyance you mentioned.

However I do see a point in using the scrapbook as IM, its a lot more passive way of messaging than using an IM. You can know the status of a person in IM, there is no way here in orkut to know if a person is online unless if they are on gtalk.

Some usually make us confuse who is this? by changing there name often. sometime the name its look different to understand!

"Lara has retired" "Saurav da is back" ha ha ha. Do peeple has these as display names really?

Crazy idiots!!!

i second that :)

hmm it really does matter since orkut does not refresh these names for a longer time.. we still see the old name in friends list on home page even thought the person has changed their profile name....

Sandhya Ramachandran said...

lol!

I'm obsessed with changing pics and profile names!

Best way to search in orkut is through e-mail addresses!
But well.. if it's someone whom you have absolutely no other detail of but the name...well... makes sense!

he he! I gotta just have my name and pic!

True. The latest was "Driving 80 miles to see Shivaji".

Scrap is sometimes crap. Guys don't know what to scrap and what not to. Stuff that is private is thrown right at you
