Starting today, there are 3 ways to get invites:

  1. Join Poppy and Shashi on the official community ( for insights into the new version of orkut and participate in one of the many activities that will be taking place there. Be sure to check back often as the owners will be regularly announcing new ways to get access.
  2. Find a friend who’s already using the new version of orkut and ask for an invite. You can see who’s already gotten access via your activity stream or by this icon that will appear on your friends’ profile pages, next to their names.

I’d like to think of this as the beginning of a new evolution for orkut though the updates make it look just like facebook. I like the older orkut though… what do you think ?
