Poll: Plurk or Twitter?
This week, our survey covers the micro-blogging service Plurk and Twitter. According to stats shown by Google Trends, the Philippines is ranked #3 visitor of Plurk.com worldwide.
Okay, it used to be #2 until Taiwan took that spot from us. On the other hand, we’re nowhere in the top 10 for Twitter.com.
Then again, between Plurk and Twitter, Plurk seems to be the more preferred choice among Filipinos. It’s yet unknown why this is so but if you look at the average profile of a Plurk user and a Twitter user, you will see the age range is much lower with Plurk.
The Philippines doesn’t normally follow the social networking trends in the US. We’re into Friendster more than Facebook, into Plurk more than Twitter, into LiveJournal and Multiply than WordPress and Blogger.
So our poll this week aims to answers some of these questions — Which micro-blogging tool do you favor? Plurk or Twitter?
