In the past we saw many bugs and flaws in the world of Orkut – Google’s social networking site, but the one I am going to mention in this post is really too hilarious and I don’t understand what is making Orkut treat a Male as a Female.
Actually few days ago, one of our reader – Dnyanesh informed us about this bug, which treats his profile as a female’s profile and shows all updates accordingly. You can view clearly in the screenshot below, all the updates in ‘My updates’ section in his profile is showing “D?y????? ?k? ????lc???????g??k™ received a comment on her photo”
I was totally confused when I received a mail from Dnyanesh mentioning this bug. For a moment I thought Dnyanesh must have mistakenly updated the sex status in his profile settings as ‘Female’ and I personally visited his profile to check his gender mentioned there, but found that his status is ‘Male’. Later I even asked him to recheck his sex status inside Orkut profile settings and then he confirmed me that his status was already set as ‘Male’. It is then I was confirmed that there is a bug in Orkut which is treating Male profiles as Female profile. There may be even chances that Orkut must be treating them vice-versa (female profile as male profile).
I have already reported this bug to Orkut, meanwhile if you come across this hilarious bug in your status message too, then you are requested not to panic 😉 Also do let us know, if you too have come across such funny bug.
Thanks Dnyanesh for the tip. 🙂
