Plinky.com Adds Creative Content to Your Blog or Profile
Plinky.com just launched, but it's hard to classify this new site.
Plinky has some of the typical features on a social network, but it's main purpose is to provide unique and inspired content to your blog or social network profile.
Each day, Plinky provides a prompt (a question, or a challenge) to each user. Depending on the prompt, your answer may incorporate photos, maps, playlists and more. Once you've answered the prompt, you can share your Plinky answers on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and most other major blogging services.
For example, I signed in today, and my prompt read:
Name three songs you'd put on a road trip mix tape.
Here's the short list I made:
You can establish a profile that provides basic contact info, a picture and your website. Once you've established your profile, you can sync your answers to post on your Facebook wall. Plinky also provides a friend finder tool via email. Once you find a friend on Plinky, you click "follow" to read their answers. You'll also notice the number of followers you have, similar to Twitter.
I like the design and simplicity of the site, as well as the chance to submit a prompt. Having said that, they're still working on a messaging feature and a mobile version,so the jury is still out.
