I was given an invite to Pownce, a new social networking site partially developed by the creator of Digg, Kevin Rose. It’s a way to share notes and send files to friends. It has a nice interface on the website and even a desktop application. I just set up my profile today and it’s quite nice. The website is very user-friendly and very Web 2.0. I like the simplicity of the design and the features. Settings are easily customizable and everything looks great.
It’s easy to publish notes and send files, but it’s not entirely for me and I’ll tell you why. I’m not entirely sociable. I don’t have massive amounts of friends that I need to send things to. As of right now, I have one friend on Pownce (Geoff) and I added another designer. I plan on meeting more people and developing a network, but as for now, it’s not entirely important. I was very anxious to check out this website because I’m a big fan of [the concept of] Digg.
That said, thanks Kevin Rose, Leah Culver, Daniel Burka and Shawn Allen for creating this new social networking site. I’m sure many people, especially college students, will love it. I already do and it’s not entirely useful to me.
Thanks Geoff, owner of Gearfire, for the invite.
If anyone needs an invite, let me know. I have six left.
