10+1 Reasons Why I Love Plurk

If you like Twitter, you’ll LOVE Plurk! Plurk is from People + Lurk, basically stalking what our friends doing in form of a timeline. They also have Karma, the bigger the Karma, the more you can customize your Plurk Page.


If you think Plurk is wasting your time, think again! Here’s why I love Plurk:

  1. Easy MicroBlogging
    Sometimes you have no idea to write in your ‘real blog’. Maybe you wanted to whine about things or let people know what you eat for dinner and still get feedback from your friends immediately (lots of them gets the update as soon as you post). Plurk is the answer.
  2. They give you the idea
    Even if you don’t have anything to say, Plurk gives away the qualifier to tickle our fingers to type and Plurking. Some popular qualifier are ‘says’ and ‘is’. It’s also available in Indonesian. Just click Plurk Privacy & Options and change your Plurk Language to ‘Indonesian’.
  3. You can share easily
    Share your videos on YouTube, Photos on Photobucket and Flickr, Image from Imageshacks, easily by using the qualifier ‘shares‘ followed by the link of the page you wanted to share
  4. It’s Mobile
    You can Plurk anywhere using your mobile phone.
  5. You can use it for research
    Either you confuse what to eat for lunch or some more serious research such as customer behavior research, you can do it easily on Plurk.
  6. You can announce things
    So you just write a new post on your blog and had the urge to announce it to the world, just Plurk it! I make some announcements sometimes.
  7. They have widget for your blog
    Check out my Plurk widget at the right side of my blog. You can also have it on your Plurk profile > edit > under the widget tab
  8. You can stick with Twitter
    If you can’t decide what to choose, Twitter or Plurk, you still can post to both at once by signing up at
  9. You can Plurk from Firefox
    Plurk integrate with Firefox to make it easier for you to post or track the latest updates. Gets the extension here.
  10. You can Plurk from your Desktop
    By using it as your wallpaper :D This is for seriously addicted Pleep (Plurk User)!
  11. It’s entertaining
    You could easily addicted to it and I mean, really really addicted. You can get motivated, laughing so hard for silly things they plurk, whining, share your lunch photos, etc.

    hi there and thanks for the information : I’ve certainly found something totally new from your site. I nonetheless noticed a few technical problems using this site. I was wondering if your website hosting is alright? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times may very likely affect your placement in yahoo and can damage your good quality information on this site. Anyway I’m putting this RSS to my reader and can look out for even more of your fascinating content..

    Hallo Herr Bardenhagen,ich lese Ihren Blog seit einiger Zeit mit Interesse. Sie haben violleg Recht, die in Taiwan sich vollziehende Transformation der chinesischen Kultur (gerade auch der politischen Kultur) sollte in Europa weit mehr Aufmerksamkeit bekommen, als bisher der Fall ist. Planen Sie vielleicht etwas zum Wahlabend?Kai Marchal

    我主要看网页制作,脑经急转弯和冷笑话. I did not know that you like 脑经急转弯和冷笑话. I guess that you only go out after your computer aencdcit (which seems to be a good thing). I did not do anything in July too (because the weather in New York was too hot I got sunburn on my face, shoulder and neck plus nape & blisters on my feet already), although I did go to New Jersey in June (I only post the New Jersey blog in August because I did not have much free time. By the way, I found 5 churches on one street that might sound like your heaven, perhaps). 高中独自做了三年的网站,每年都做一个,如今早已成为了回忆。那时总是每天早早完成作业,晚上每天都开着电脑进行制作。高三的前半个学期也是如此,所以高中三年难免有点睡眠不足。现如今,大学生了,写程序早已成为了一种习惯,但并不是生活里的一部分。我想把它变成生活中的一部分,热爱它,与他形影不离。我喜欢地理、我喜欢生物、我喜欢化学,可是我如今选择了计算机,我不曾后悔。毕竟,这门专业离我最初的梦想很是接近——以为出名的网站制作者,可以是专攻前段,可以是写PHP或者JavaScript。总之,这些就是我所热爱。  很可惜,国内没有相关的专业,所以我选择了计算机,前段和后端程序有着某种必然的联系。一切的改变似乎很是突然,可是我所热爱的不曾改变。我愿意为他付出我所有的时间,哪怕是加班加点,我总是希望提早完成。或许这就是兴趣的力量,或许也只有兴趣能让一个人愿意付出自己宝贵的时间,真心地去完成一件事。 Have you consider to work in another country? By the way, try not to work over-time if you can. I will visit from time to time kiddo.
