In the vein of the Twitter thread, I figured I'd see who's trying out Plurk. I know Twitter's capacity problems have been driving more people to try it out lately. Some of us are also playing with Ping.fm for posting to both at the same time.

I hadn't heard of Plurk until now. I checked out your site. Interesting. I like the visual timeline, although I felt like it should have the "past" to the left...which I realize is just part of the way web pages work...

I may try it out.
Interesting, I never really thought about the directional flow. I wonder if they considered that when they set things up. I'm gonna guess it's because we normally read left to right, but of course not everyone does.
Yeah, in my mind (as crazy as it may be) I think that the newest should be on the right since we read left to right, although most would want to read your latest update first, so it's immediately on the page. Since the scroll overflow is generally on the right, I guess that's where the "history" went.

It felt weird, that's all.
Thanks for enlightening me to a new toy to try.
I'm http://www.plurk.com/user/quaif - the jury's still out as to how long I'll keep checking it. So far I find twitter easier to keep up with.

What's the difference between a friend and a fan, really? Is it just if someone refuses to add you as a friend you can still follow their updates? Is it a social thing so you can rate your friends? ("I just don't know you well enough to add you as a friend... but I'll follow your stuff")? So far I've been inconsistent as to what I've done with whom ;)
Think about someone like Leo Laporte. He's a big champion of Plurk, but when you start getting into the volume of people chasing you like he has, your friends can be people you actually know and interact with, while your fans are people you've never even met before. Not as big a deal for us small timers, but I think it's helpful on bigger networks.
One thing they added recently is the ability to post "Only to my friends." If someone is your fan, your updates show on their timeline. But if you post "only to friends" they don't see it. Controlled plurking:)
The biggest bonus of Twitter is its mobility. Anyone who has tried to update Plurk or view the timeline via mobile has seen how narrow its focus is. Browser-only. And that's not going to cut it in the coming months if the product remains the same.
Yup I'm plurking although mainly twittering...

Also just wrote a blog post today about syndicating status updates across social networks.

Basically you can shoot out a twitter, plurk, pownce, and update your facebook status all at one time.

So if your doing one you might as well push it to all right?
i've tried plurk and pounce and just can't shake the stalker-bait feeling i get when i blog my every steps.
I know in Twitter you can set your updates as protected so only your friends can read them... don't know about the other services... but probably.
I find Plurk's post privacy to be far more robust. Twitter it's basically an all or none sort of thing.

On Plurk, you can disable commenting on a post, and you can limit post viewing to everyone, just friends, or just one or more cliques. And that's down to the per post level.
i'm plurking at http://www.plurk.com/user/ctbarber and an invite URL should anyone want one is http://plurk.com/redeemByURL?from_uid=4677&check=-1912179177&am....

Also they do have a way to find Twitter friends and then add them as Plurk friends.
