Orkut improved their status update feature by adding facility to send update on Orkut homepage. Now one can say they have completed copying this feature from facebook. 😉
As you can see above, this improvement will surely increase use of status update feature.
Notably this feature suffered from a bug few days back where users exploited it to display any images when it suppose to contain plain-text update messages. Now with this change, it will be interesting to see if this feature breaks again.
Thanks Deepak for tip! 🙂
