As one of the most popular microblog engine today, Plurk has been a sanctuary-like space for me. Of course there are not only Plurk outside there. There are some reasons I love using Plurk on social network.
First it has a unique timeline, that no others microblog engine even look nicer that plurk’s. Obviously this timeline gives a lot of burden to network access, including they who live with dial-up internet access. But the mobile page was so simple and friendly use. Both styles give a nice user experiences – IMHO.
Secondly, the privacy setting become more flexible than other engine. Even we can look down the privacy just for friends, but the unlocked account still has some private space for personal conversation without affecting the public timeline. We don’t need the whole world know our conversation – but we don’t hide.
And the last is about the simple navigation of plurk, we can easily found which conversation already replied/responded, which one got new comment, etc. Simple, yet very fast to find them all at once – especially when you got in the mobile edition.
