I have an account but I don't use it really. Although the percentage of English speaking users has gone up noticeably. I'm not very satisfied with any of the current social networking sites like myspace, facebook, tribe, friendster, etc

Apparently TOMHTML and I both live in Cambridge, UK.

I think something is a bit wrong with this...

I don't know how it works, but most of my friends are not shown on the map while most of them have locations, country isn't enough ? btw there is no direct link from orkut, i think it's still alpha ... not even a beta

<<there is no direct link from orkut>> What about the bit that says "New!" when you log on?

I think it mus be done on Post codes as it points straight to my house eve though there isn't a street. I remove the post code, and I'm suddenly moved a mile to the east. So If you spelt the name of your town wrong or Google can't find it it probably just puts you somewhere (eg. in the middle of the pacific ocean :-)) but for some reason it can't find Brighton (about 10 miles from where i live)
