I see on twitter etc that quite a few of my fellow bloggers are setting up formspring pages. I’m more than a little reluctant to add to my already formidable array of social network thingummies. Those of you that are formspringing, what benefits are you finding from it?
I’m a little disappointed that it’s hard to find people I don’t already know some other way. I’d like to see a “recent questions answered” type page. Or maybe there is one and I haven’t found it. 🙂
But there is something enjoyably narcissistic about answering questions – it’s like being personally invited to comment on every blog post that comes by.
As far as I can tell, the burst of interest in formspring came and went very quickly – a whole bunch of people set up formspring accounts within a few days (including me), but there seems to have been no activity for weeks.
I’m going to split the difference between Ariane and dave’s comments. I like the narcissistic question & answer session, but I suspect it will be short lived. It’s not the most user friendly and there’s no opportunity for discussion on the site, it’s literally question and answer. It shall be interesting to see how it develops though.
Ohhh, so it’s like OKCupid without the flirting? Huh.
Am on it but can’t find much to recommend.
It’s okay, but nothing spectacular. Gave people the chance to ask me some questions they might otherwise have been afraid to ask. I don’t like coming across as “scary”, but I guess I do sometimes!
