funny I got a good following on my fashion blog on tumblr and flickr without plurk. I very much dislike Plurk even though I used the platform for awhile. Too much drama and just didn't care about what people were posting, that and I never got anyone to comment on my plurks, so it was kinda boring.

My own social media habits that dive into personal stuff usually are more to my friends and my friends only and I am interested in the lives of only so many people and plurk just kinda expanded my network to too many people. I am a heavy facebook user and those who I share a much closer connection in Second Life I friended their actual personal account. I realize not everyone wants to do that, but the friends I established in Second Life have become friends in real life.

Thank you so much for taking the time to follow up on my comment, Iris!

In the last few weeks that I've started to immerse myself in SL social media, I've found that Reddit is like the perfect marriage of a small, intimate forum and a moderate blog feed. Flickr is full of phenomenal photographers and it's really proven to be a fantastic place to find new blogs to follow and places to explore (ALWAYS appreciate it when people put SLURLs or locations in their descriptions!) And exactly as you said, Iris, Twitter is indeed shaping up as more of a one-sided broadcasting platform, but I think much of that depends upon who you follow, and whether those people opt to use it for chatting in addition to sending re-plurks or blog links.

So while they all have their merits, Plurk really does sound like the ideal social platform for bloggers and I appreciate your thoughts on it! Will definitely give it a closer look, and your tips on how to use it and find people to engage with are really helpful. :)
