Orkut is Google's social networking attempt. The basic idea was created by one of Google's engineers who quickly adopted the idea and created the social network Orkut from it. Orkut is one of the most popular websites on the Internet even though it does not receive all the media coverage that networks like Facebook or MySpace receive.
Orkut login problems are reported by many users of the service. Some say that the page is not loading at all after logging into Orkut, others say the page that is loaded is completely white or loads that slow that they have to cancel the Orkut login attempt.
There are a few options that might help users who face Orkut login problems. The Orkut developers are offering the following advice:
- Clear your cache, then try accessing your profile again.
- Make sure that cookies are enabled in your browser.
- Try accessing your account from another browser.
- Try restarting your computer.
There are however other options for users who have troubles logging into Orkut. The first option is to access the mobile version of the service instead of the web version. The mobile version of Orkut has a much smaller footprint which should help users on slow connections. It can also help users who have Orkut login problems as it is located on a subdomain. The mobile version of Orkut can be accessed here.
Another little trick that might help is to log into another Google service first (e.g. http://www.google.com/mail/ ) and switch to the Orkut login page afterwards. Orkut should recognize that you are already logged in and let you in without asking for login information.
