Keeping in mind the stiff competition in the field of social networking sites, it seems even the Orkut team is heading towards innovating new things.. Recently Orkut announced the launch of Adult content filters and now ‘Reply by chat’ option. Firstly this feature appeared on the photo album of a Orkut guide, mentioning as a bug. But later on it was discovered that the fact was completely vague, rather it was a new feature introduced 🙂
On the screen shot above, you can clearly notice a new option ‘Reply by chat’, when clicked on it, the user is directed over to Gtalk window and a new conversation with the sender is automatically initiated. As far I’ve noticed this feature is available across the Orkut profile, from scrapbook to photo commenting, etc.
Also, do not get pissed if you do not find this option on your profile, as this option will be visible only if the sender of the scrap is currently online 🙂
It has also come to light, from Orkut help group that, this feature was implemented on 1st of November 😉
