More dazzling news coming from Google (in its own words actually), the company announced today on Orkut’s official blog is that Google+ can now be linked with Orkut, Google’s first social network. The feature allows Orkut users to automatically share their public posts on both network at the same time. This is what the company has to say:
After you link your profiles, your Orkut profile photo and name will be the same as your Google+ photo and name. In addition, you will be able to share all your public Google+ posts with your Orkut friends. Your Google+ posts to limited audience or specific circles will remain on Google+ only and will be subject to your privacy settings. As a result, linking your profiles will also make it easier for your Orkut friends to find you on Google+.
Linking your Orkut and Google+ profiles is optional and you can decide whether you want to do it or not. In addition, even after you link them, you can decide if you want to share your public posts with your Orkut friends or not just by accessing your Orkut settings.
