If you want to revisit your past, visit now, as today, the ORKUT social networking site is going to shutdown officially. Due to less no of users and growing popularity of other social networking sites, google decided to finally shut it down.

In a blog post, Google had said, “Over the past decade, YouTube, Blogger and Google+ have taken off, with communities springing up in every corner of the world. Because the growth of these communities has outpaced Orkut’s growth, we’ve decided to bid Orkut farewell.”

Orkut and Facebook both were launched back in 2004. While Facebook gained popularity with around 1.2 million users, orkut didn’t succeeded much.

Google said that it will save the archives of orkut after it will be closed on 30th sep. So the users who want to completely remove their profile from orkut should permanently delete their account before google closes it.

Orkut’s fortunes floundered a few years ago and it is finally being closed.
