I just realized that the plinks haven’t been updated in over a month; time to change that. I also just realized that I should be more careful as I had this 95% done then by accident clicked the X on my firefox tab without noticing. The horror!
Interesting Plurk Statistics - This was the catalyst for this.
I don’t care for these statistics much but they are there none the less. We all know Alexa and some of the other metrics used are flaky. They are still some of the best horrible metrics we have to use.
Welcome Back Plurker
Written by KDFrawg and company over at Plurkiverse. Give it a listen and I believe it’s the very first Plurk inspired song ever produced? Wow!
Updates Out For Plurk Mobile
I have never used plurk mobile but have heard early reports that it was clunky and cumbersome to use. Hopefully these new updates will make mobile plurking easier. Eventually everyone will be plurking from a mobile I believe. (If they own one that is).
Plurk Tips & Tricks 1 - Name Linking
I was going to say pretty basic and mainly for someone totally new to plurk. Then I saw the creator drag a name into the box and erase most of the URL and add the @. I had no clue you could do it like that. Being a fast typer I’ll probably just freestyle it but it’s good to know; just learned something new.
Plurk is Conversation Centered - Twitter is User Centered
Interesting bloggery about how Plurk is about conversations while twitter is about users. I liked how Jane mentioned she’s never had a conversation on twitter more than 2 replies deep. Come to think of it I don’t have many of that caliber or much further. It’s simply too difficult and half the time I have no clue which tweet they are replying to anyways unless the explain. Problem with explaining is it takes most of your 140 characters and leaves no room for the actual reply; I digress.
Plurk Vs Twitter - Not the same, here is why
Thoughts on the differences between Plurk and Twitter from features to behavioral patterns by Tamar.
That’s about it for now in terms of plinks. Turns out the first version I wrote of this had a few more plinks but no summaries. Looking at this finished piece I like the summaries and will continue to try and include brief ones for each plink I list. I guess everything really does happen for a reason?
Tomorrow there should be some new bloggeries as well as one about the PlurkCAST.
Stay tuned for more things plurk,
