For some reason I’m getting a burst of invitations to join folks on Plaxo Pulse. Sometime ago a landed in Plaxo. Aside from generating Spam, I found it way to intrusive. So, stopped using it. The best way to connect with me is Facebook, Twitter, and Skype. I sometimes fire-up Yahoo. Across the IM services I am kiwilark.

    I signed up for Plaxo, and the system started sending my address book mass invitations to connect. Or worse, every time I would change the slightest thing on my vcard, the system would spam my address book. It’s a handy way to keep up with people — but it’s obtrusive, too.

    Interesting. I find facebook far more intrusive – but as its my friends generally asking me to set my stripper name, I guess I have to deal with that 🙂 Plaxo Pulse is quite a good idea in principle, but like all of these mechanisms (I’d include LinkedIn as well) you have to got to want it, as it were.

    I’m letting Plaxo Pulse run for the time being, and seeing who connects to me rather than the other way roud (which I did with LinkedIn). As for Facebook, it woudl be first up against the wall when teh revolution came, if I was in charge!
