The allegation is based on the presence of 9 identical bugs in Orkut that also existed in In Circles.
On August 25, 2007, Orkut announced a redesign and the new UI contained round corners and soft colors, including small logotype at upper left corner; this redesign was announced on the official Orkut Blog.
The service was designed to help users meet new and old friends and maintain existing relationships.
The website was named after its creator, Google employee Orkut Büyükkökten.
Another feature is that any member can add any other member on Orkut to his/her "Crush List" and both of them will be informed only when both parties have added each other to their "Crush List".
