Orkut Creator Returns with New Social Network: Hello

Orkut Buyukkokten, best known software engineer by Brazilians for creating Orkut, closed by Google in 2014, is back with a new social network. Called Hello, the main difference compared to competitors like Facebook and Twitter is the focus on “deep friendships”. It is being funded by several investors, including Google itself.

In letter the field that housed the old social network, Orkut says that Hello is the first social network built through deep friendships, not “Likes” in an indirect rather direct to Facebook. “We follow the news feed of our friends under our blankets in the dark. Our lives are mere pieces of anonymity and isolation, “he says.

The only way to access the Hello, at least for now, is through mobile applications. It has several features similar to other social networks such as Folio, a kind of news feed based on your personal tastes; and personas that are focused passion communities, such as “baseball fan” and “photographer”, for example.

By filling your Personas, you will be presented to Potentials, who are people with hobbies, personalities and similar location.

The social network bet on gamification to encourage users to participate in the service. As you interact, commenting, loving or publishing in Hello, you can earn points, unlock achievements, level up and redeem rewards. The interface is almost a mixture of Instagram with Swarm.

The new social network is now available to users in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The Hello will be released in Brazil in August, but you can now request an invitation on this page. It has applications for Android and iOS.

We are testing the Hello and publish our first impressions soon.
