For security purposes, the Orkut sandbox opensocial calls will only
return information about users who are whitelisted for the sandbox.
This is likely why many of you have been seeing empty information
returned from the fetch VIEWER_FRIENDS calls.

Please friend other whitelisted developers, or register additional
test accounts to build a graph of whitelisted friends.

Hi,

I have just created this Orkut community to find friends with a
sandbox account.

Have fun!

Just to clarify... do we create a test account in the LIVE Orkut
environment (live Google Account), then use the form to request this
account to gain entry into the sandbox? Before I create test
accounts, I want to be sure this won't look bad or malicious.

@Victor - This is a great idea, thanks!
@Bob - Yes, create a new Google Account, sign it up for Orkut, then
request access using the form on code.google.com. That use is
perfectly acceptable.

I'm moving this discussion to the Orkut Discussion subgroup. Please
post there if you have any additional comments.
