Google said:We will shut down Orkut on September 30, 2014. Until then, there will be no impact on current Orkut users, to give the community time to manage the transition. People can export their profile data, community posts and photos using Google Takeout (available until September 2016). Starting today, it will not be possible to create a new Orkut account.
Orkut, the service, may be going away, but all of those incredible communities Orkut users have created will live on. We are preserving an archive of all public communities, which will be available online starting September 30, 2014. If you don't want your posts or name to be included in the community archive, you can remove Orkut permanently from your Google account. Please visit our Help Center for further details.
On September 11, Ronak Chugh uploaded a video on Youtube titled "Goodbye Orkut - #OneLastLogin". In the video, people are asked to log into Orkut for one-last time. The reactions vary from joy, to surprise to absolute nostalgia.
Take a look at this hilarious video, and if you have ever been a part of the Orkut brigade, do make #OneLastLogin before September 30
