Orkut Added New Settings – Create Filters For Notification

orkut settings - notification filter-1.jpg

In a smart move from orkut team, to reduce spam notifications you get in your mailbox, a new setting – Notification Filter is added to orkut’s existing settings.

With this setting you can choose to receive notifications from either:

  • everyone
  • friends of friends
  • friends
  • groups of friends

You can also configure filters individually for email notification, orkut message-box notification and orkut pop-up notification.

Although not strong as Gmail filters, these orkut filters can provides fine-grain control over existing orkut settings.

Still one major improvement many orkut users awaiting from long time is list of online friends. It will be great if small pop-up notification window on orkut blinks whenever a friend comes online. As of now such notifications are shown only when somebody scraps you on orkut.
