How Hello Works
You can use Hello app in English, French or Portuguese and the app does not use external data beyond the contact in your phone-book. You need to sign up and select five “personas” that you are interested in. The personas you can select such as photographer, animal lover, actor, clubber, Burner, foodie (one who love food), skier, etc. and you are limited only to five.
Will Orkut be a Successor on “Hello App.”
It is not so easy to connect the world online where hundreds of apps and websites help in making friends and love. But Orkut says. Still, there is hatred in the world which saddens me. So he created Hello App that builds the relationship on loves, not likes, which he mentioned in his blog and he is very much confident about “Hello” success.
We will see whether Orkut turned Hello be a competitor to other social networking Apps or websites. All the best to the social network pioneer Orkut on “Hello.”
