Website of the Day: Plurk


No, Plurking is nothing like Twerking. Plurk is like the less popular, slightly reserved cousin of Twitter. The creators claim they have "taken the time, the complexity, and the deep introspection required out of blogging," which translates into a platform designed for one liners and random updates.

A plurk is a small message or link (it has to be less than 140 characters) that you can broadcast to your friends or the whole world (a la Twitter). You update your Plurk on the site, through instant messaging or by text messaging. Images, Youtube videos, and other media are shared through links and tiny thumbnails instead of in their full form and your plurks are displayed on a cool timeline. I like the site because of its simplicity and it has an indie, not-everyone-knows-about-it vibe, but it's still functional. Who knows — maybe we'll all be plurking in a year!
