UNESCO stops Google from shutting down Orkut, declares it a “heritage site”.
Interfering in Google’s decision to shut down the once legendary social networking website Orkut, UNESCO has convinced the tech giant not to shut down the website and instead handover it to them to maintain and preserve it as world’s first heritage website.
This is the first time UNESCO has declared a place in the virtual world as a heritage site. Orkut was chosen for the honor because of the important role it played in shaping social networking civilization and culture, especially between 2004 and 2010.[link url=http://www.fakingnews.firstpost.com/2014/07/unesco-stops-google-from-shutting-down-orkut-declares-it-a-heritage-site/]
