I’ve been using Plurk for 10 months already, and realized I didn’t write any article related to this service.
So I decided to make a blog post about it that would benefit Facebook and Twitter users or even those who are using Friendster and Yahoo! If you are using social networking websites, you will like this post. If not, just tell me why. I’ll be happy to hear that from you.
Plurk is a free social networking and micro-blogging service like Twitter. I like using this actually because of its unique timeline, displayed horizontally in the homepage. Check out Wikipedia to learn more about its history.
This micro-blogging platform is very popular in the Southeast Asian region particularly in Taiwan, Philippines, and Indonesia. Some users are from the United States and other western countries.
Use Plurk to publish micro-blogs to Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, and Friendster
With this micro-blogging service, you can publish your rants or updates on your profile. You can also share links, photos, videos, music, and etc. All of these can also be published as Twitter updates, Facebook status post, Friendster shout out, or even Yahoo! updates. What you only need to do is just to integrate these services with your account. Once integrated, you still have the option to add some hash tags just in case you don’t want to publish the Plurk updates on other integrated services (that would be a separate blog post).
Plurk is an interactive social media tool. You can respond to other users’ updates, comment on links or videos, etc. If you are on mobile, you can still respond to other users’ updates or even the responses on your own updates via instant messaging or SMS.
This service is very easy to use and very light. What I mean is that, it loads fast on web browsers- thus you can conveniently interact with your friends and fans. You can check out my profile and if you are interested just register and add me as friend (LOL).
