Orkut’s put up stats, showing the connectors (people most other people are most closely connected to), the celebrities and the stars. As Danah points out this probably won’t help build community, but it’s interesting seeing who’s listed. Clark, one of the US presidential candidates who’s now withdrawn from the race, is on there. His profile is being managed by Cameron Barrett, the man behind Blogdex, but still. Presidential candidates don’t just blog, they Orkut. Or get their employees to do it for them.
Though he didn’t win.
