With gaining popularity of Orkut Apps, profile pages on Orkut are becoming heavy like Facebook profiles. Well this was bound to happen as orkut is blindly copying features from facebook. After status update & photo-tagging, orkut is now added facebook like drag-n-drop method to customize profiles.
As you can see below, first thing I did, was moving testimonial box above recent photos and videos.
Although I have just two testimonials on orkut (despite having more than 500 friends 🙁 ), I think many people will prefer testimonial above recent photos and videos.
Anyway this dynamic orkut profile will help you manage application boxes on profile more efficiently as explained by Adam Winer on Orkuts official Blog…
- Reorganize your profile page with drag-and-drop: Simply click on any of the applications or showcases (photos, videos, and testimonials) on your profile page and drag them around until they are just as you’d like. The new layout of your profile page will automatically be saved, so your profile visitors will see everything just as you want it.
- Put as many or as few applications on your profile as you want. Until now, you were able to display up to three applications on your profile, and some of you wanted to show more. Now, when you add an application, you can choose whether or not you want it on your profile. Just select or unselect the "Add to my profile" box above the big "Add Application" button. You can change this any time with the "tool" button in the upper-right corner of the application.
To hide a profile box…
- Click on tool icon (top-right corner of box) on that box.
- Application setting page will open. Uncheck “Add to my profile” option on right side and click on save button.
Something could be done better…
