Orkut Buyukkokten, the engineer behind Google’s social network website, is visiting Brazil for the first time.
He is in Rio de Janeiro this week, and will visit São Paulo (including a breakfast at GooglePlex with a select group of clients) next week and after that Belo Horizonte, where Google has a research&development facility.
Orkut is the #1 website in Brazil and 8th in the world. 57% of Orkut users are from Brazil, accounting for more than 22 million of unique visitors/month. USA stands at second place, with 18% of users.
Here’s a link to my personal blog with a photo and here is Orkut’s photo album in Brazil.
