Google's Social networking site Orkut has revamped its look and added a host of new features as it tries to regain its lost popularity. Google, which owns Orkut, said the new look has a user interface, or homepage, which is faster and easier to use. The new Orkut has features like posting video testimonials, changing the colors of the content boxes and the ability to discover friends automatically, video chat integrated with Google Talk, ability to upload photos in bulk, add and view photos and videos in-line. Initially, as part of the initiative, Orkut will make its new features available to selected users and communities. Later, the features will be made available to other Orkut subscribers via invitation.
