Manage Your Friends Easily on Orkut

Friends, I have been facing a little problem, i think a serious feature was missing from orkut which would help us in organizing our orkut accounts, because many of my school and college friend's name are same, just today orkut added this new feature which have solved my this problem lately and have made organizing friends very easier, as i have been saying in my previous posts that 2008 will be the year for many new orkut modifications and voila i just love this new feature for managing friends. Here is what Official Orkut Blog have to say about this...

Friend groups have been on orkut for some time now, but we're now making them more accessible throughout the site to make it easier for you to create new groups or add new friends to them. Here's what's changed: when you add a new friend or accept a friend request, you can now select which group(s) you want to add them to. You can also modify these groups (rename them, remove them or add new ones) either when you add or accept a friend, or on the friend management page. And we've turned friendship levels into groups for you, so that you can send messages to all your best friends, or see all the friends on orkut that you haven't met offline yet.

These guys at orkut are surely working at their best to give us all improved orkuting and latest features to manage our friends and social networking, my sincere wishes and hats off to these guys... they rock :)

Content Privacy in Communities to Block Non Members from Viewing your Content

Well its your community you have worked very hard for making it and reaching it to the level it has reached now, you have sufficient members now who come to your community for the content posted in it, well google now enables you to make your community's content visible only to your members.
Yes now community members can restrict the non members from viewing the content posted in the community, but it does not restrict in any way the members of the community to access the content in any way, if used in the right way this option will provide increase in the no. of members to the communities and community owners will be able to get more control over their communities.
If you own any communities Here's How you can do this:
Go to Your Community.
Now go to Edit Profile Option
Here you will see this option as shown in this pic.Now if you want to keep the content open to non members leave it as it is and if you want to hide it select the hidden option and save it, and you are done my friend...

Official Orkut Blog Says:

A wise man once said "Privacy is the condition of being left alone, out of public view, and in control of information that is known about you." Here at orkut, we're keeping up with your requests for additional privacy controls. We recently added new features that allow orkuteers to limit viewership of photos, videos, testimonials and scrapbook to friends.Based on your feedback, we've decided to go even further to empower the owners of communities to choose whether to make their community content private or public. The additional privacy control we've added allows you to make your community an enclosed entity so that you can discuss whatever you want within its walls (of course, content must abide by orkut community standards and policies), resting assured that only members can view your discussions, forums, and events. Have you ever thought of creating a community poll like "Who is the best teacher at your school?", but stopped yourself from doing it because the teachers might actually see it? Or perhaps you wanted to create a community to keep in touch with family, but didn't want to share your family events and posts with the whole orkut community? While communities are a great place to meet new people who share your interests, we understand that the current structure of communities sometimes makes it difficult to have intimate discussions with a select group of people. We hope that the introduction of private communities will fill this need.

Orkut Privacy Tips from Orkut Buyukkokten - The Creater

Orkut have changed in many ways and this is what the creater of orkut himself pointed out well, that now a days with the amount of information shared on orkut, the need for privacy is all much more improved and now he have issued an video on how everyone can ensure better privacy on orkut.
Official Orkut Blog Writes

Orkut isn't the same social networking site that it used to be. When I created the site, there was less information to share and there were fewer sharing controls. Since, we've added ways for users to upload photos and post videos, include friend updates on user homepages, and send and receive scraps. To help you manage what you post on the site, and what you share with whom and when, we recently launched some new sharing features that give users control over who gets to see their photos, videos, testimonials, and scraps.

In order to walk you through these changes and to continue educating our users about their privacy choices, I filmed this brief video tutorial, orkut style. As the video shows, keeping information private - or just between your closest friends - is easy and safe. And when you've got something that you want the entire orkut community to discover, then allowing everyone to see your profile or your photos is also just a few clicks away.
