Google Will Shut Down Its Orkut Social Network In September


Orkut, the social networking service Google launched back in 2004, miraculously survived multiple rounds of spring cleaning despite the fact that it was never a huge hit outside of Brazil, India and a few other countries. It was always just a matter of time before Google was going to shut it down, however, and that day has now come.

On September 30, 2014, Orkut will be officially shut down. At that point, users won’t be able to log in anymore, photo export to Google+ will be unavailable, and all the APIs and other tools will go down, too.

Until September 2016, however, Orkut aficionados will still be able to export all of their data using Google Takeout. If you still want to see what Orkut was all about but you don’t have an account yet, it’s sadly too late to do that now. Sign-ups for new accounts have been disabled.
