Orkut Down For 13+ Hours [It's back now, though] Google’s Orkut Down For 13+ Hours Dec 29, 2006 10:27:21 GMT Google’s Orkut social network, which has been having a bit of a renaissance this year, has been down for the last thirteen hours as of 2 am PST. It’s unlikely this is an upgrade given the amount of time the site has been offline. This just isn’t Google’s day.
