Orkut from Google is one of the most popular social networking site and is widely used by many all around the world and especially in India. Orkut is quite popular for scrapping which means leaving short messages on your friends scrapbook. Also you could check out your friends scrapbook, albums, videos, etc.. Its one of the best ways of keeping in touch with friends and family. Now we could get one step further you can now view orkut scraps as RSS feeds, ie., read your (or anyones) orkut scrap with out loging in to orkut via a feed reader or a RSS reader (i would recommend Netvibes.com). Heres how to go about it.
1. Login to your orkut account, then go to your scrapbook.
2. Copy the uid number from the address bar. eg.. If your URL is http://www.orkut.com/Scrapbook.aspx?uid=23324521232134466 then 23324521232134466 is your uid.
3. Now to convert this scrapbook to an RSS feed file go http://www.indian-tv.com/orkut.php?uid=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
(where instead of xxxxxxxxxxxxx type in your uid... in this case it would be 23324521232134466)
4. Now copy the complete URL ie., (http://www.indian-tv.com/orkut.php?uid=23324521232134466) and subscribe via any of your RSS reader, like Netvibes.com, Google reader, Yahoo reader or Feedburner etc.
You could also keep track of others scrapbook by using their uid instead of yours... so sit back and be in touch..
