Social networking has been here since times immemorial in one or the other manifold existent forms. There were times when only verbal communication and pigeon posts were considered a means of connecting with the world around, but things have changed, and are still changing, consistently.

Back to the era when Facebook was new, there were only a handful of social networking sites that were outrageously popular and one such social networking platform was Orkut. But, ever since Facebook evolved, we can certainly assert that there are not many people who bother going back to Orkut for all those gossiping comments and social networking activities that once consumed considerable part of their day.

Thankfully, Facebook now allows you to keep in touch with your Orkut account without signing into it. Yes, you can now stay connected with both Facebook and Orkut accounts directly by signing into facebook. No need to sign into Orkut separately. Here is how to enable the connect facebook to orkut feature.

The configuration process to avail facebook settings for orkut is absolutely simple. Here are the steps to the aforementioned procedure.

1. Log into your Facebook Account

2. A notification / reminder should appear on your account homescreen which says “Link Your Profile With Orkut”.
