danah boyd on orkut
Social network researcher/academic, Danah Boyd, has a number of important points to consider surrounding Orkut.com, Google’s new social network tool. Please read her comments before signing up (that is if you get an invite!)
I, for one, will sit this one out. I’m in Ryze, Tribe.net, Friendster and LinkedIn. I really only use Friendster and LinkedIn. I can’t see myself using Orkut unless they change their Terms of Service significantly.
Google- this is not a good example of “not being evil”.
