Google closes Orkut
Google informed users of the Orkut service that after 10 years of operation, the company decided to close this site in the coming fall (September 30, 2014).
The reasoning for this step is quite banal - the loss of interest of the target audience and the much higher growth of other services, both from Google and from other companies.
It will be possible to collect your data from Orkut until September 30, 2016 through Google Takeout . Photos can be transferred to Google+ .
All public posts plan to transfer to an open archive. Those who do not want to get into this archive are advised to delete their personal data .
