How to add my Orkut friends to Facebook - bonus fb emoticons

Orkut was THE popular social-network in India till a few weeks back. Everybody in school and college had to have an orkut profile to be cool till a year back.

Now that status has been taken over by facebook. And rightly so, because facebook, though riddled with privacy problems, is much more entertaining than orkut. This is not only because of the hugely popular and infamous games like Mafia Wars, Farmville, Fishville, Youville, Cafe World, and other Zynga creations, but also by the status updates and the comments and like and pokes and all sorts of TMI (Too Much Information) being highly entertaining by itself.

Earlier, it was very easy to add your orkut freinds to facebook, but just choosing the import orkut friends feature on facebbok, or the CSV file list of freinds downloaded from Orkut.

But Google knowingly or unknowingly(yeah, right) blocked this feature.

So right now, here is how you can import your orkut friends to facebook.

Connect Orkut with Facebook

Step 1: Drag the Facebook bookmarklet ( <-- this link) on to the favorites/bookmarks bar of your browser.

Step 2: Login to your Orkut account and click the bookmarklet button. OR you can click here.

Then Facebook Friend Finder tool will start scanning your Orkut contacts list and it will show you a subset who are also on Facebook. Then Click “Add Friends”. All it is done.

Also, you can use this same friend finder bookmarklet for connecting Rediff contacts.

As a bonus :
