先简单扫盲一下:Twitter,是06年开始火爆的一种“微博客”,通俗点讲,就是你可以通过非常简单的方式把你现在的状态更新到Twitter上,发布给外界。例如“我在吃午餐”,“我在逛街”,等等。Twitter起初只是一群程序员和“爱尝鲜者”的小玩具,后来发展到正规组织和公众人物都参与进来。著名的参与者(单位)有:奥巴马(总统候选人)、洛杉矶消防局、CNN等等。恩,期待哪一天咱们的CCTV也能开一个微博客,哈哈:)

【对比】

最近,一款类似的叫做Plurk的产品开始流行。与Twitter一样,你可以更新你现在的状态。只不过,这种状态以时间轴的形式“立体”的展现出来。我认为,这是一种视觉上的极大革新。

时间轴对我来说是一个再也熟悉不过的概念。我相信看我博客的许多老朋友也肯定有同感。02年接触Flash技术,第一个接触的概念就是“Timeline”(时间轴)。当时,Motion Tween(简易线性动画)和Shape Tween(性状补间动画)都是看着帮助理解的,唯独时间轴,是如此的不言而喻,一目了然:把时间的先后顺序展现在一个坐标轴上。

Plurk则将Timeline的概念很完美地融入到了Twitter模式中。这个使用JavaScript开发的Timeline在我一番摆弄后,竟与Google Analytics中的Flash技术制作的Timeline不相上下,实在是难得。当然,有人也表示,这是“换汤不换药的模仿”,毕竟,利用Twitter的API,基于Twitter的数据和用户做一个类似的应用是可能的。

Keso在Pownce出来的时候曾说过,Twitter不会(被Pownce)受到威胁,是因为它足够简化。虽然我当时对Pownce寄予厚望(主要是我期待Pownce能利用AIR玩出新花样),可是Kevin Rose估计还是忙着折腾他的Digg-nation节目去了(是不是要进军娱乐圈?)那么,Plurk是否能像Twitter那样获得“规模效应”呢,只能拭目以待了。

感兴趣的,可以看看我的Timeline。想体验的,可以在这里直接注册。也可以接受我的邀请,成为我的好友,体验多人Plurk的趣味:)

【小技巧】(部分待译)

一、订阅

订阅某一个人,只需要在他Profile页面右侧找到输出即可。或者你直接在他Profile地址后加.xml

例如我的:http://www.plurk.com/user/nba

RSS就是:http://www.plurk.com/user/nba.xml

订阅某一个Plurk,只需要在那个地址之后加一个.xml,就是RSS输出了,例如:

http://www.plurk.com/p/f027(某一Plurk)

http://www.plurk.com/p/f027.xml(回复的RSS)

二、关于如何获取更高的Karma

  • 未公开的小秘密

    Plurk Karma is an interesting little creature. We constantly tell ourselves it isn’t really important, yet we can’t wait to see the next update. Many of our peers and fellow Plurkers say not to worry about it because Karma is designed to benefit those without motive of personal reward.

    Ignoring Karma would be easy to do, if it actually worked the way real Karma should… but it doesn’t. Let’s take a look at the Wikipedia entry for the word Karma.

    Through the law of karma, the effects of all deeds actively create past, present, and future experiences, thus making one responsible for one’s own life, and the pain and joy it brings to him/her and others.

    The flaw of Plurk Karma is that it has rules. If you don’t follow these rules, your Karma drops. Traditional Karma operates in a random manner that rewards good deeds that do not have selfish motive, yet Plurk Karma does the complete opposite. In fact, most, if not all Plurkers take actions that bring Karma because they know it will bring Karma. And if we as Plurkers do not follow the rules set forth by the Karma gods, our Karma will fall.

    So it’s important to note up front that Plurk Karma in no way operates like real Karma. It never has, and it likely never will.

    If Karma is not important to you, and you see no need to work on keeping it on the upward slope, the rest of this post will probably not be for you. If you do, however, wish to succeed in Karma, read on.

    How to be Successful With the Current Plurk Karma ALGO

    1) Plurk Has Rules
    You must always remember this. Plurk has advantages over all other social networks that are extraordinary in design. The system combines the powers of sites such as Twitter, Digg, Chat rooms, instant message and discussion forums.

    Because this is new and unchartered territory, Plurk is working to ensure the site isn’t abused and/or spammed. The problem is that the route taken so far is to limit the true ideas of social networking, and place rules on the community. If you’re to thrive in this community, you have to follow the rules.

    For example, Plurk discourages you from befriending new Plurkers by penalizing you if your friend request is denied. The idea behind this is to keep Plurk from becoming a hot bed of “power users”, which makes sense. But, by doing this, Plurk has cut out the ability to find new people and build online friendships. If I see someone who I have similar interest in, I want to extend an offer of friendship and begin following their Plurks. This doesn’t make me a “fan”, so why would I become a fan? I want friendship, not to be a fan. Yet, if I’m denied for whatever reason, my Karma drops.

    Rules, Plurkers… they do exist.

    2) Plurk Hard… Every Day
    Unfortunately, Plurk has taken the stance that the more active you become, the more time you’re expected to be Plurking. If you want your Karma to continue climbing, you simply cannot miss a day, period. It doesn’t matter if you have a wedding, church, family vacation… whatever.. you MUST log in and Plurk every single day.

    3) Gain Fans and Referrals
    The fan part is kind of crappy in my opinion. Over the past week I’ve added a lot of “fans” that actually requested friendship. Why? Because gaining fans helps raise your Karma. And losing friends drops it. So even though you might wish to be a friend and not a fan, chances are you’re going to end up a fan of mine if you request friendship. I know it sounds terrible, but this is the way the Plurkers in charge wanted it, so we have to deal with it.

    The rule of thumb is simple… add people as fans.

    Referrals also help quite a bit, so be sure and link to your referral URL as often as possible. Link to it from your blog, your social networks, your email… everything.

    4) If Plurkers Won’t Respond to it… Don’t Plurk It
    I know I know.. but you thought you were just here to share your life right? Wrong. Not if you care about Karma anyway.

    Responses to Plurks raise your karma. If you truly want to succeed Karma wise, you have to think about what you’re Plurking, and you have to make sure that every single Plurk has the ability to provoke a response. Therefor, each Plurk has to be crafted to create discussion. the idea that you can just randomly Plurk whatever comes to mind is not a good one when it comes to successful Karma trends.

    5) Don’t Plurk Too Much
    Plurk recommends you keep your Plurks under 30 per day. Even if you have a busy day and want to share more of your life, you need to zip it to make the Karma gods happy.

    This is likely set up to keep spammers from loading the timeline with useless Plurks, but unfortunately the blanketed attempt hurts veteran users who have proven themselves legit.

    6) Update Your Profile
    This one is simple… upload a pic, edit your profile, etc. it really does help.

    These are the basics, Plurkers. You may not like it, but it is what it is. If you’re constantly mindful of Plurk Karma, you’ll want to keep the above items on your mind at all times.

    My Opinion on the Karma ALGO
    Now, real quick, I would like to say that I think the ALGO is good for new Plurkers, but I think it stinks for more entrenched Plurkers. I think one of the advantages of reaching a certain level of Karma should be a new karma ALGO.

    I mean, why should I be penalized if I need to take a day off, when I’ve been Plurking every day for a week straight? Why should I fear asking someone to be a friend? Why can’t I Plurk more than 30 times if I want to? Have I not, as a regular and loyal Plurker, proven myself to not be a spammer?

    That’s my two. Do you have anything to add?

    Plurk Hard,
    Eric Odom

  • 官方的:

    Every plurker has his/her own karma value. It is recalculated every day and can be within these intervals:

    • 0.00 to 21.00: You are in the state of creation
    • 21.00 to 41.00: You are in the state of maintenance
    • 41.00 to 61.00: You are enlightened
    • 61.00 to 81.00: You are so close to Plurk Nirvana
    • 81.00 to 100.00: You have reached Plurk Nirvana!

    Some tips on getting more karma:

    • Updating your profile (picture, location, birth day etc.) will gain your more karma
    • Quality plurking each day
    • Responses from other plurkers will gain you karma.
    • Inviting your real friends will boost your karma

    What will lower your karma:

    • Karma will be lowered if you request friendship and get rejected
    • Getting unfollowed by friends will lower your karma
    • Spamming other users will lower your karma
    • Inactivity for a long period will decrease your karma

    A good rule of thumb is to plurk like you have something to say/share. Plurk spamming will only force your friends to unfollow you and trigger the negative karma effect.

    原来你就是那个nba-。-

  4. Piggest 2008-06-15 12:51:39

    久违的Flash相关文章……(关联度还真不大- -b)

    Shape Tween最早源于Cartoon界对动画里面时间和间距的研究。推荐Richard Williams的《动画基础技法》。好书好书。

    awflasher不讨论flash不如改名为awentertainment或者awgossip算了~哈~

    • aw 2008-06-15 12:54:23

      你能看到这里面关于Flash的内容,说明你还是认真看了的,(*^__^*) 嘻嘻……,我真是感动啊。。。
      不过,我也想改名,可是,这玩意。。。不那么好改呢:(
