    Keith,

    I doubt anyone will leave FB or Twitter for Orkut. In fact, a lot of folks in India are definitely using Orkut less and FB more.

    But where Orkut has an advantage in India is the early mover one. Orkut is very popular amongst the teenage population and specially in the rural/2-3 tier cities.

    Also, Orkut fulfils the voyeurism which most of the folks indulge back home :-)

    And its good that these changes are kept rolling out so that they can at least maintain their core constituency instead of losing them to rivals
