Back in August, we reported that, "Google.br Might Face Shut Down For Not Releasing Orkut Users' Details" also, there was news about how "Google Removed Fake 'derogatory and malicious' Orkut Profile of Indian Chief Minister".

Now, WSJ reports, that, "Google said advertising appeared on only 1% of Orkut pages and represented a "test" of online marketing on the social-networking site, which is especially popular in Brazil and India. The move came after a Brazilian nonprofit group, SaferNet, lodged a complaint with a Brazilian advertising body."

Loren Baker says that, "Pulling the AdWords ads in Orkut is a smart move by Google until they can learn how to better police the content being served on the Google property, and target their advertising accordingly."
