Orkut is an Internet social network service run by Google and named after its creator, Google employee Orkut Büyükkökten. It claims to be designed to help users meet new friends and maintain existing relationships. Similar to Friendster and MySpace, Orkut goes a step further by permitting the creation of easy-to-setup simple forums (called "communities") of users. Since October 2006 , Orkut permits users to create accounts without an invitation.

Scraps in orkut are messages which people send to one another. To read someones scraps one needs to first visits that persons profile. In this case the persons whose profile was visited comes to know about this.

This small trick helps you to read any ones scraps as RSS and that too without logging into orkut. So now you can read scraps of your friends and foes without letting them sense that you read there scraps. And you also do not need to log into orkut for this.

See the URL given below:{uid}

Now when you visit someones profile (might be yours) you will notice that the URL in the address bar contains a long number called uid. Replace {uid} in above URL with the uid of profile URL.

This URL will work in (as I haven't tested it on other platforms). If you are familiar with concept of RSS feed readers and netvibes then you just need to use the URL which contains profile uid as the feed URL in netvibes.

If you are not familiar with netvibes then read on.

Visit netvibes and register as you normally register in other websites. Once done click on "Add a feed" link in left column. Paste the URL which you created above into the address bar as shown in image below and click "Add".

Voila! That particular persons last 10 scraps are listed within seconds. Explore netvibes and the small window which contains the scraps. You can this way see as many profile URLs as much you want all in netvibes without actually logging into orkut.

This method could also be used to atleast read scraps in networks which have blocked orkut.

Did you like the trick. Do me a small favour. Copy the URL given below and paste it into "Add a feed" as you did for orkut link.

This will let you reed my blog articles as RSS. Enjoy!
