"After ten years of sparking conversations and forging connections, we have decided it's time for us to stat saying Goodbye to Orkut." mentioned by Google on different posts, forums and emails. Google engineering director Paul Golgher said in a blog post : "Over the past decade, YouTube, Blogger and Google+ have ten off, with communities springing up in every corner of the world. Because of the growth of these communities has outpaced Orkut's growth, we have decided to bid Orkut farewell. Orkul was the result of a 20 percent project in which Google workers got to spend a fifth of their time on ideas not necessarily related to their job responsibilities."

On 30th June 2014, Google Inc. announced that it will be closing Orkut on 30th September 2014. No new accounts can be created from July 2014 onwards in Orkut. Those who are already the user of Orkut, can export their profile or download all the archives by Google Takeout. 

Orkut was one of the msot visited websites in India and Brazil in 2008. (source Wikipedia). In 2008, Google Inc. handed the operation and management authority of Orkut to Google Brazil, in the city of Belo Horizonte. This was decided due to the large Brazilian user base and growth of legal issues. 

Despite the popularity, and due to many seen and unseen causes, Google Inc. will be closing the famous social networking site viz. Orkut from 30th September 2014 onwards. The departure of Orkut from Google Team is supposed to be boosting the other social networking sites viz. Google Plus, Blogger, and so forth.
