|Orkut Vs Facebook Vs MySpace|
Orkut is run by Google — the site was launched in January of 2004 and named after Orkut Büyükkökten, the Turkish Google employee responsible for its creation. It helps you meet new friends, get in touch with old ones and permits the creation of community forums that users can be part of.
Facebook, on the other hand, was initially a website reserved strictly for students of Harvard University. It was launched in February of 2004 and gradually extended its membership to include students from other universities across the globe. Today anyone with a valid email address and falling within a specific age group can sign up for a Facebook account. It also offers members the chance to join groups online and run forums within them. Facebook is particularly known for its photo-sharing feature.
MySpace is an online community that lets you meet your friends’ friends. Create a private community on MySpace and you can share photos, journals and interests with your growing network of mutual friends!

MySpace Overhauls Site, Focuses on Entertainment
MySpace has unveiled a revamped site with a focus on entertainment and content rather than subscriber-driven profiles, pulling in social elements that are more akin to Twitter and Foursquare than rival Facebook.
MySpace has faced tough competition from Facebook; the News Corp.-owned site has about 100 million users compared to Facebook's 500 million. MySpace acknowledges as much with Wednesday's revamp, saying pointedly that "previously MySpace was people-focused, now the focus is content."
Though personal profiles still exist, MySpace focused much of the upgrade on content distribution – the latest updates on celebrities, bands, TV shows, and movies rather than what your high school lab partner had for breakfast or photos from that weekend BBQ.
