Okrut seems to be adding a new “Friends Map” feature. Its listen in the help section of Orkut, but not yet implemented.
Can I see where all of my orkut friends are located?
You can see where all of your orkut friends are located by taking a look at the new “friends map” feature. This feature combines Google Maps and orkut profiles to let you see where all of your friends live around the world. To see the “friends map”, just follow these steps:
1. Click “view all” at the bottom of the “my friends” box.
2. Click the “friends map” tab at the top of the page.
You can click a friend’s profile picture to see their location on the map. Please note that if we do not have map data for a particular region or if your friend chose not to put their location in their orkut profile, you will see a message “(not on map)” below their profile name.
You can also click the “tiny little blue men” to see your friends’ locations. By clicking one of these figures, a bubble will pop open to let you know which friend lives in that location.
How do I use the “friends map” feature?
The friends map on orkut.com is a feature offering powerful, user-friendly mapping technology to see where all of your friends are located around the world. With the friends map, you’ll enjoy the following unique features:
Find your friends – By clicking on any of your friends pictures on the right-hand side of the map, you’ll be taken to their locations on the map. You can also click on any of the “little man” icons on the map to see which friend is where. (Note: If we don’t currently have map data available for your friend’s location or if they didn’t include their location in their orkut profile, you’ll see a message “(not on map)” below their name.)
Draggable maps – Click and drag maps to view adjacent sections immediately (no long waits for new areas to download).
Satellite imagery – View a satellite image (or a satellite image with superimposed map data) of your desired location that you can zoom and pan.
Zoom – You can zoom in or out by using the navigation bar in the left-hand side of the map.
