Google launched a "new 'auto-share' option that lets you effortlessly share what you're watching on YouTube with your friends on orkut. To start auto-sharing with orkut, visit YouTube Activity Sharing tab, under YouTube account settings page, and click to connect with orkut.

From now on, all scraps you send to your friends will also show up in your profile, making it easy to start new conversations. You can join a conversation already going on by simply adding a comment to it, and entire conversation will start showing up on your profile too, so you won't miss a thing. Once a third person joins your conversation by posting a comment, entire conversation will also show up on his profile.

Of course, you can also click "scraps to me" link to see only scraps sent to you.

To keep something secret, just send a private scrap to your friends, and just those people selected will see it.

You can also edit or add more privacy to your overall experience visiting new privacy settings window, designed to make your life much easier. You can open it at anytime by clicking "settings" link on top of any page. It'll be faster than ever to select privacy levels the way you really want!

try using orkut's promote feature to get your message out there. If you get really creative, you can also add photos and videos. Since there's no way the orkut team could ever agree on a single team to support, we put together a doodle that we hope everyone can enjoy. We've decorated our sign-in page, but don't forget that you can decorate your home page as well," said Google.
