Orkut was the OG social media site.
For every Pakistani who was born in the 90’s, you all probably remember the infamous website, Orkut.
It was the Facebook before Facebook.
For those of you who have no idea what we’re talking about, Orkut was pretty much the original Facebook. Along with Myspace, it was the cool website for friends to ‘stay connected’ and well, in reality for everyone to just stalk their crushes. So basically, what Instagram is for us now that Facebook is basically a shit-show 😛
We even asked you guys what you remembered about it and got some pretty interesting responses
The scraps ? and those random groups

Lmao, evidently good memories.
SO, just out of curiosity, we googled Orkut just to see what the good ol’ website was up to.
And we found this:
What it means is that ORKUT IS DEAD
And though most of us pretty much knew this, lolsy, it was still a little sad to see.
But friends, it seems as if Orkut is now something completely new. Hello! It’s ‘Hello.’
And mind you, we really have no idea when this page was updated or if this page even exists. For all we know, we could very well be being trolled by random IT bots on the Internet! (Hiiiii bots!).
But just to make sure we covered all of our curious bases, we decided to take a look at the so-called, ‘Hello.’
And, it’s real:
THIS IS WILD, YOU GUYS.
So it’s pretty much a different version of what we all loved.
So there ya have it, folks, if you were wondering what your childhood has become, here it is, all laid out on the Internet (well, as an app) for you to enjoy.
Hope we didn’t ruin your childhood memories! Love you.
