Latest web addiction. Obsession. Love.
A turbo-cousin of Twitter (and waaaay more reliable, too...) it's social networking taken to the groovy, hep side -- with a time-line format and a threaded conversation feature that acts like a chat/IM. Plus, for us grammar lunatics aficionados, there are options for which verb you want to use for your message -- and they're color-coded too!
There's also this function called cliques -- the ability to group your friends together into categories that you choose. The possibilities for that one are endless -- both from a practical and slightly saucy standpoint.
Biggest appeal for me -- the threaded conversation and chat. It's like having a party-line IM, only a lot cooler and without having to dial up Sarah the town telephone operator to get the shindig started.
So c'mon. Join me on Plurk. It won't hurt -- promise.
