Recently Google has released a new iPhone and Android apps for Orkut.

Since Google plus is now the new Social networking site from Google (which is now 90 million+), I expected Orkut users will be moved to Google plus (either automatically or after permission).

But, Google is releasing new apps for iPhone/Android, and now, you can get an Orkut badge saying ‘This user has a Google+ account’. I can’t understand what is Google’s plan with Orkut. Most my Orkut friends are not active. Orkut now looks uglier when compared to Google Plus / FB. I have not yet deleted my orkut account, but would like Google to shutdown Orkut completely and educate users to move to Google+, rather than maintaining two different Social networks.
