(Hat Tip: Rupush and Inside Orkut Brasil)
The boys and girls at Google have created a new feature that allows users to insert their photo albums or weblogs inside their Orkut profiles.
All you need is a site feed and Orkut will display your album/blog for your friends and family to see.
(Orkut Edit Feeds) Want to share your photos from Fotolog, Picasa Web Albums or Flickr? Have a blog on Blogger, WordPress or LiveJournal?
Now, you can add your blog, photos, events, bookmarks and more to your orkut profile. Add the website or RSS/Atom feed address below and orkut will automatically import it and fetch new items.
If you already use Picasa Web Albums or Blogger, Orkut will automatically discover them for you and ask if you want to add these sites to your profile.
To add a site to your Orkut profile simply find out your the site's RSS feed (simply look for the "orange square" in your browser or on the page).
Then right click on the link.
Next, visit your profile page and click on the Edit Feeds button (or click here)...
...and paste the link you copied earlier into the space next to the funky orange square.
Next, click on the add button to the side...
...and type in the correct "word" to pass Google's "are you an evil robot or happy human" test.
Finally, click the "add button" in the lower right hand corner, and if you have proved yourself to be one of the lucky creatures known as human, you and your friends will see your blog/album on your profile page.
If you click on it (say a blog) you will see your posts wrapped in blue.
Great job Google! Now if only we could get RSS feeds for forums inside Orkut, then you would attract more visitors from the US of A (hint, hint!)
