As part of our continous efforts towards giving orkut users more ways to share interesting content with their friends, we are happy to announce the launch of the orkut Share API. The API allows website owners to enable their visitors to share the content on their website, with visitors' friends on orkut.
Users can share the content and optionally promote it to make recommendations to their friends, which then appears in their activity updates. Every such shared item has the potential to spread virally and get wider attention from orkut users, increasing the traffic to the website.
Some of our early access developers like addthis.com, have already started supporting orkut in their list of services. If your website has implemented sharing functionality using the 'addthis' button, you can simply configure orkut in the destination network list.
Details of orkut share API and sample code can be found here.
So spread the word, have fun sharing!
