More Information on Plurk
- Plurk is a social networking site that is presented in a journal or timeline update format, called "plurks".
- A Plurk is a small message or link that is less than 140 characters. One can easily inform friends or those in specific "cliques" about daily activity by writing a plurk. Example use: 'Gee golly, my children are plurking all day long, what's a mother to do?'
- Plurks can be adjusted according to mood, hunger, desire, and any other word choice just by selecting one of 18 pre-set "qualifiers" and then adding additional bits of information, additionally, users can opt to plurk freestyle and entirely create an individualized plurk.
- Tabs exist so Plurk users can keep track of all plurks, just their plurks, their private plurks, and plurks they have responded to. Users can easily navigate the time line and view plurks by other Plurkers (users of Plurk).
- Furthermore, users can check out other Plurkers by clicking on the link 'interesting plurkers'. Without becoming friends, users can view other Plurkers by becoming "fans" of their work.
- Thankfully, plurks can be kept private if users choose to select that function, however, this is done on a per-Plurk basis.
- Privacy options include: the whole world, only my friends, and a specific friend or clique.
- Plurk is an international site and can be viewed in 22 languages.
- Plurk keeps track of users popularity with a 'Karma' rating. A user's unique Karma rating increases as one posts Plurks and as fellow Plurkers respond to those posts. 1
