Orkut Added Scrapbook Privacy Feature! Safeguard your scrapbook against strangers!

Just noticed a new Orkut Setting so that you can choose who can scrap to you! You can choose between…

  • Friends Only
  • Friends of Friends (recommended by DW)
  • Everyone in your networks

If you haven’t noticed it yet, look for a handy link in your scrapbook as shown in following screenshot…

Orkut Scrapbook Settings 1

Clicking on it will take you to the Privacy Setting page of your Orkut account. Under setting “select who is allowed to view my content“, modify write in scrapbook option from drop-down menu. Setting it to all of my friends will prevent rest of the people on orkut from scrapping you.

I guess people (specially girls) concern about their privacy should choose either Friends or Friends of friends!

This will surely bring some relief to girls who are annoyed by sick people on Orkut! Isn’t it???

      I guess better option is to use keep your scrapbook clean using scrapbook deleter script.
      If someone ask about it, you can say you are concerned about privacy of all your friend! 😉

  10. @samir

    Cross check that he’s still in your friend list. There might be two reasons cuz of which you are not able to send scraps,

    1.You have send lots of scraps before, so this service will be unavailable for you for the next 24 hours

    2.You are in your friend’s ignore list.
