At first I taught plurk was just another micro-blogging tools aside from Twitter…

July 22, 2010

Hi there! Plurk has been a essential role model for me and I would like to share on how Plurk shaped and transformed my life.

At first I taught plurk was just another micro-blogging tools aside from Twitter…but I was wrong, on 9th Oct 2009, I joined Plurk and began exploring the world of Plurk.

Plurk gives me the opportunity to share ideas, learn new stuffs which I cannot experience it from other tools. I learn how to communicate and keep in touch with my friends!

As a student/freelance designer and a programmer, I often offer my help to design some Plurk layouts for my friends. I would update my plurk with announcements when my new design was out. My plurk friends was always supportive and their would share their ideas, critiques and comments so I could improve my skills.

Plurk has opened its doors to a whole new level and It has taught me valuable experience and knowledge, getting to know friends from plurk helps me to improve myself and also learning their cultures, language and their lifestyle.

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to say Thank Plurk for bringing us this wonderful tool! Without you, I won’t be as successful as I am today! I hope you continue to grow and to be the best micro-blogging site in the world. All the best and Good Luck!

From Winnipeg with love

July 15, 2010

Hi! I read your plurk entry about sharing love to plurk, “plurky stories”. So I grabbed this opportunity to share my story with you guys.

I am now in Winnipeg, Canada. Our family migrated here last January 2010 from the Philippines. It was very hard specially for me to move here because all my friends were in the Philippines. I don’t know anyone here and we’re like starting life all over again.

I am very close to my brods and sisses from our organization, The CPS Triangle. I always chat with them about anything under the sun. I am always updated with the new gossips about everyone. So, being here made me so lonely, and envious because they’re all together. I really miss them.

But thank God there’s Plurk! Using plurk is like talking with them about anything. All the new gossips and updates about them were all there. We teased each other there, did heart-to-heart talks through private plurk, and shared our happiness and sadness with everyone. I still have the chance to bond with them. That way, my feeling to be with them, in a way, lessen. So thank you Plurk.

I hope you continue doing great things here in Plurk. Good luck and more power.

I love Plurk !

July 5, 2010


Yes, I love Plurk ! And most of Taiwan’s Plurkers would probably say the same: 我愛噗浪 !

噗浪 (sounds similar to ’pu-laun’, laundry without ’dry’), the Chinese name of Plurk, was possibly translated by initial users according to its pronunciation and then officially recognized and used in common. It has, no doubt,   become the most popular micro-blogging tool in Taiwan, and the rest of you may be aware of that Taiwan has taken the Plurk’s No.1 place in terms of traffic volume and number of users. No matter how big the other SMS products are all over the world, Plurk is still the favorite here!

July 1, 2009, I registered Plurk. And today, one year later, I’m here to confirm what has come to my mind… As you may see the Picture* I pasted above, it’s just what I exactly feel about it! Looking at these fascinating and unique creatures, each of them is cute and special. But they do exchange ideas, information, or even innovations over the community. No matter what, they share values, sorrows and happiness altogether.  So, I come up to get known new stuff and make new friends. Plurking has become essential for everyone in everyday!

In Taiwan, I guess the importance of Plurk is now something more than Facebook, Twitter, or local blog services would be. And the users among us would seldom use MSN, or even ignore those messengers because of Plurk. It’s hard to say in detail why Plruk is so popular here, but almost everyone uses it, takes the most advantage of it for any purposes you may think of. It’s neat, easy, user-friendly as well as multi-functional. Not only to put words, make a hyperlink, but to upload and/or post a picture; or share a YouTube video with a click!

The Timeline designed, which I may write another page for it next time, is also the key function making it powerful and value-added. If we say the Internet is the best place to learn and share, then Plurk is the best tool for it!

BTW, it’s July 1st.. and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to CANADA ! !
We appreciate you guys making such great services possible from there…  ^^

*The Picture:
I adopted it from the Plurk official site as it appears at this moment,
and fixed it a little bit to make it perfect for this picture story.
