Orkut is surely catching up with Facebook and Twitter fast. I was just trying to find some share buttons online and guess what I found? An Orkut share button…. Yeah, just like the Facebook share button, there is an Orkut share button too…
Here is a step by step guide on how to add an Orkut share button to your website:
- Go to http://www.google.com/webelements/orkutshare/
- Customize your Orkut share button
- Grab the auto generated code and add it to your website\blog’s template…
Now when you click on the share button it would automatically opens the share screen for you to share the site. The title and the URL is automatically generated according to your settings on step #2.
Here is how the Orkut share screen looks like:
This is when you click on the share button.
And this is how it shows on the new Orkut stream!
Another interesting thing to notice is that the Orkut promote uses Oauth URL callback from http://promote.orkut.com/oauth_callback[Unique-id]..
What are your thoughts about this new feature in Orkut? Are you going to use it as much as Facebook or Twitter share buttons? Post your comments below and let me know.
