Will Orkut come back? This is what its creator, the Turkish programmer Orkut Büyükkökten, suggested after the reactivation of the site orkut.com. On the page, the founder published a text criticizing today’s social networks and promising news soon.
The news took many nostalgic people by surprise, as Orkut was the first large social network widely adopted by Brazilians, and was present in the digital daily life of many of the “veterans” of the internet. The subject is one of the most talked about on the internet this Thursday (28) — posts on Twitter in Brazil currently total more than 31,700.
Check out below how netizens are dealing with the possible return of the social network.
Orkut nostalgia and memes
The platform allowed adding contacts and posting messages (the infamous “scraps”) on the person’s walls. And as the messages piled up on the person’s wall — for everyone to see — it was common for people to try to “mark territory”, being the last profile to post there.
Orkut will come back!
The top is mine.

Good morning, only for those from the Orkut era where everyone was a friend, we made statements to each other and the world was happier.#OrkutVaiVoltar
