On September 30, 2014, Orkut will be officially shut down. At that point, users won’t be able to log in anymore, I still remember first time when i created my orkut accout a few year ago, but we can not do anything so should be say good-bye now.

Orkut, the social networking service Google launched back in 2004, miraculously survived multiple rounds of spring cleaning despite the fact that it was never a huge hit outside of Brazil, India and a few other countries. It was always just a matter of time before Google was going to shut it down, however, and that day has now come.

On September 30, 2014, Orkut will be officially shut down. At that point, users won’t be able to log in anymore, photo export to Google+ will be unavailable, and all the APIs and other tools will go down, too.

So you don't want to lose your information?

No worries, You can back up your data as a zip file.

In order to download your Orkut information, you must be the owner of the account. Some Orkut information can be downloaded using Google Takeout in a single ZIP file containing HTML files and JPEG photos.

You can download these items from Orkut:

— Your profile
— Scraps received
— Testimonials received
— Activities
— Your photos

Note that you can only export the testimonials and scraps you have received and their comments.

To download your Orkut information:

1. Go to the Google Takeout page.
2. Click Choose services and then select Orkut.
3. Click Create archive.
4. Wait for the archive to be ready. It may take some time. Optionally, you can be warned by email when it's ready.
5. When it's ready, click download.

There's no limit on how many times your Orkut information can be downloaded.
