Get Orkut Scraps on Mobile for Free!

By -

SMSChannelsLabsLogo A year ago, we posted an article about getting Orkut scraps via SMS, and many Orkut users appreciated it. Basically it was a combination of services provided by Mytoday SMS feeds and Orkut feeds. Let me also tell you that this trick was first discovered by Pavan. But, unfortunately the service stopped working within a couple of months as Mytoday server was overloaded. Now we are glad to inform you that, this service could be reactivated using Google SMS channels.

Now you would surely say that Orkut already have such a feature available officially. But let me clear this point, this feature is made available by Orkut with some charges, but using this trick you can enjoy free scrap alerts on your mobile without even wasting a penny. πŸ™‚
Unlike the previous case.. This service works with the help of Google SMS channels and Orkutfeeds

Just follow these simple steps:

Step 1:
First of all you have to get the feed url of your Orkut profile by using orkutfeeds.com.
For this, just open your Orkut profile and copy the home page link (In my case it is http://www.orkut.co.in/Main#Profile.aspx?uid=17131020411019753927).

Step 2:
Now go to orkutfeeds.com and paste your Orkut profile link (already generated on step 1).Orkutfeeds

After this, just hit the subscribe button and you’ll be provided with your Orkut profile feed url (In my case, it is http://www.orkutfeeds.com/feed.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.orkut.co.in%2FProfile.aspx%3Fuid%3D17131020411019753927).

Step 3:
Also add “#both” at the end of the above URL so that you can get messages of the scrap as well.
Now my feed URL becomes http://www.orkutfeeds.com/feed.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.orkut.co.in%2FProfile.aspx%3Fuid%3D17131020411019753927#both

Step 4:

Now go to Google SMS channels homepage and create a new channel as shown in the screen shot below. If you don’t have an account on SMS channels then create one by logging in with your Gmail password.

Create channel

Step 5:
Fill all the required details and feed URL of your Orkut page (refer step 2) on the ‘RSS/Atom feed’ form and finally hit the ‘create channel’ button.

That’s it! Now you’ll be getting scrap notifications via SMS for life πŸ™‚

Note:

  • For this trick to work on locked scrapbooks, you must add this Orkutfeeds bot as your friend.
  • Scrap notification are delayed for 2-4 hours depending on the Google’s server traffic.
  • Unlike the trick discovered previously, only the sender name of a scrap will be notified. πŸ™
    We have worked out to get full scrap messages as well, just follow the STEP 3 mentioned above πŸ™‚

    £both
    will i be able to get the notification??/?
    plz reply on ma e mail
    ahlawat.anand”gmail.com

    • @Anand
      Now there is an option available in Google SMS channel to select whether you want full or just tittle of the feed..
      You can just select the option instead of adding “#both”.

  15. What I want to know is if there is any way in which my privacy is compromise in this.

    Creating a feed of my scrapbook, wont others be able to access this?

    Also, I would like you to clarify a few points, that when you check the box saying keep me logged in while loggin in, everytime you visit orkut you will get the link to your home. You have to click your profile link to get the correct link of which you want a feed. eg
    When I visit orkut .com I get this link http://www.orkut.co.in/Main#Home.aspx

    You have to click on the profile link then to get the correct link.
    http://www.orkut.co.in/Main#Profile.aspx?uid=&rl=t

    Then u use this link and add #both at the end then create a feed of this on orkutfeeds.
    The link u should use would then look like

    http://www.orkut.co.in/Main#Profile.aspx?uid=&rl=t#both

    Add this feed to ur favorites, then create sms channel grp with rss / atom link of orkutfeedpage generated.

    Am I doing sumthin wrong here? Or is google just messin up my mind?

  16. Well dude, that feature seems to be working since yesterday, but with the delay as usual… Anyways, lets see till what time it is going to work..

  17. Hi Deepak,

    Congratulations for your Zee News interview πŸ™‚

    Ever since rediff released the orkut updates feeds i am on a lookout for the rss feed for Orkut Updates (not for scrapbook) but in vain.

  19. These days i am occupied for most of the time and hardly check my scraps. Thanks to this service. I would be able to get alerts if any one scraps. Surely a good one and what is encouraging is that it is for free.

  20. Hello……………..
