<<Want to see how distant your friend is from you or your other friends visually? Try People Hopper! Given two images, it hops across millions of public images in orkut so that one image is smoothly transformed into another. No computer graphics tricks are used and every image along the transition comes from real orkut users. Click on the path images to learn more about them. Remember, path between the same pair of images is likely to change every few days due to database update. So, visit frequently!>>

I deleted my old Orkut account, would someone please be so nice and add "Philipp Surname" as a friend on Orkut for a morph test? :)

I think this, and other face recognition technology, is a terrible invasion of privacy. I don't think it is too far-fetched to envision a time where someone's every move is cataloged, aggregated, and mined by third parties for any number of reasons.
