You must have noticed that Orkut has now shifted the position of ads to the top of Orkut pages. Doesn’t that make Orkut look dirty? I will show you how you can remove those ads from Orkut pages. This trick has been there for quite some time, but now that Orkut is showing them right at top of pages, I think it would be good to remove them.
- This works with Mozilla Firefox only.
- Install Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox (if you haven’t)
- Install the remove Orkut ads script
Why Orkut is showing ads ?
One of the great things about social networks is their ability to supply you with information that’s relevant to you….On the Orkut team, we believe that advertisements should be no different
So the Orkut team thinks that these ads may provide additional information relevant to you.
But that might not be the only reason. There were rumors that Google might be shutting down Orkut. Running Orkut is a very expensive task for Google and they might want to earn at least some part of the expenses through these ads.
In fact they have created a micro site for advertising on Orkut that says Orkut is the best way to reach Indians online.
