I just recently signed up to Plurk.. like 7 hours ago in the whee morning. Hence you are now looking at my instant blogging widget on the right hand side. ^_^ I’m quite liking it actually. the interface is really friendly and cool to play around with. Heavily ajax and slides around with ease when you want to see the timeline of who said what. It’s like a huge fish tank in some ways with tons of people just randomly typing out their thoughts, what they are doing… such fun
Plurk is smart in the sense in order to make you use Plurk even more, is by giving you the motivation to want to level up. They gage it by using ‘karma’. What do i mean by karma point? Hahaha it’s almost like a game but a game where you get more points the more you use the product. It’s pretty much the same system like Intense Debate. The more you reply back to people, use plurk for whatever means, your karma stats will go up.
How can you increase your karma?
- Updating your profile (picture, location, birth day etc.) will gain you more karma
- Quality plurking each day
- Responses from other plurkers will gain you karma.
- Inviting your real friends will boost your karma
Plurk is a lot more interesting than twitter in a couple of ways, other than the interface. I personally like how you get to reply back to your friends in PLurk.Plurk allows users to add emoticons to their one line sentences. So give it a try out and join me hehe
