Add Friends from AOL,Hotmail and Yahoo in ORKUT

UPDATE:  Now you can only add friends from GMAIL account. Other email services has been removed for now.


You wished you could add your friends having other then Gmail account in your orkut friends list ....Then your wish has been granted !!!

Now Google’s social networking site Orkut has added a new feature, that lets you to “find friends from non-Gmail account". You can find friends from your address books on Yahoo, Hotmail and AOL.

How to do that?

1) Login to your Orkut account.

2) Just choose the email provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail or AOL), from the drop down which is on the left- hand side bottom conner of Orkut home page as shown below.

3) Enter the user name and password for your email account, which you have selected as the email provider in the step 1.

4) Orkut will then show you the contacts from your address book.

5) It will also show who are already on Orkut.

6) The best part is that you can invite friends in bulk. Now that's a great feature in itself , what do say ?

If your email provider is not on the list, don’t feel left out, Google is working on adding more.

Note : The email provider list is not country specific, so find your friends no matter where you are, or where they are. For example, if you have a hotmail.com.in or yahoo.co.in email address, simply select “hotmail” or "yahoo" from the drop down. Remember, orkut values your privacy and security and will never store your password nor transmit it over non-secure channels.

So say my HI !! to your friends ....

Welcome to Orkut Sharing

Yes, now you will not get the drop down option, but still you can add new friends with AOL,Hotmail and Yahoo accounts and if they are already on Orkut it will let you know.

The difference is now that Orkut will not ask you to Login in your respective account to show you the contacts from your address book.
