Orkut Privacy Settings – Lock Your Album, Video and Scraps

After the user interface redesign, Google’s Orkut has added more functionality to make it a better social networking website to complete in the market. Orkut has recently improved privacy to give the members control over whether their album, video feeds, scraps and testimonials can be viewed / written by everyone or just their friends.

Orkut scrap has been a concern for many people, because anybody could have read anybody’s scarp. Social engineers could just browse through any profile and gather personal information about any Orkut member. Not anymore if you set these options in your Orkut Privacy Settings.

  42. locking albums doesnt work well.. it can be hacked by anyone . dont know abt teh script.. used to hack it.. but this was a personal experience for me.. so i am sharing with all of u.. hope orkut provides us some good locking album script so that , we dont get it unlocked after that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. Thank u google for providing the facility of locking albums and scrapbooks in orkut. That sure helps to prevent a lot of unwanted unknown people from spying on conversations and copying personal photographs and misusing them elsewhere. The lock system is a wonderful way of maintaining integrity and security. The users feel much safer now even in such a gigantic ocean of ppl, known or unknown.
