Plurk

I signed up for a new website yesterday called Plurk. My first thought when I tried it out was this is posting 140 characters Twitter posts, on a Dipity Timeline, with responses like Pownce! It certainly does take a bit of getting use to, but highly fun! I recommend signing up and trying it. It might just be the next big thing in microblogging. ;)

I tend to post quirky and random stuff here because it’s fun. :) The only thing I don’t like about Plurk right now is the logo of the headless animal. But that image is talked about so much, that I’m starting to think they did the right thing!

Be sure to follow safe plurking habits! Don’t plurk to strangers! :) But looks like the only rule I followed was #10 — have fun!


Here are my Plurks:

    I agree that Plurk is kind of fun. My last blog post was not too positive but that was also due to the Karma system which I am not a huge fan of to begin with. Editing profile information cannot be done until you reach 40! And they had some server issues yesterday so I couldn’t even change my avatar and half the time I got errors. So I will write a few more mini reviews later this week about Plurk. Those will be a bit more positive. But I still dislike the Karma system. That one won’t be fun until I have enough Karma points.

    There’s no standard “Tom from Myspace” friend added when you join. :) I think these rules are more like suggestions!
