Today R***y signed up for Pownce. I got an invite a long time ago and forgot about it so I figured I would check it out today while at work. Here are some thoughts….
The problem I have with these types of services is it seems that they are only useful if you know truck loads of people on them and they all actively use it (much like twitter). Right now I have 5 friends and nobody is posting anything of note and there is nothing else you can do on this site. What is the point of this service that couldn’t be done with email other then it’s a public record? The website is kinda slow but does look nice.
Pownce seems only good for popular people with tons of acquaintances. I’m also not the biggest fan of social networking regardless. I’m just a regular boring person and I don’t know a lot of people. For the most part I know what my friends are doing but really in the long run I don’t see myself using this website for very long.
The best part of the “Pownce” experience so far has to be the picture jjafuller chose for his photo.
