Social Networks are Like Playgrounds

I love social networks. I don’t mind that they are popping up everywhere nowadays. I look at them like playgrounds when you were a kid. No one ever said: “What, they are building another playground in the neighborhood? We already have too many!” It was another place to explore, hang out with your friends, make new friends.
The latest one is Plurk and it has a game-like thing going on. You get “Karma” points when you do things like post, sign up friends, etc. Its like a new set of monkey bars that isn’t in any of the other playgrounds. Other than that, it is kind of like Twitter. So come over to to the new playground through my Plurk link and say hello.
