ello and goodbye? - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming
ello and goodbye?
If the level of activity in my f-list page in Ello is anything to go by, it's pretty dead already. Shame. It is much busier in my flist page here.

ION, teaching a 16-year-old to play Beatles songs -at his request. Ain't the world a strange place.

It would've helped if 'ello would've started out with having a somewhat viable platform with the features you expect to have before turning the hype to eleven....

I think unless somebody comes up with a truly clever, properly decentralised solution for social networking, fb will be very, very hard to dislodge.

Diaspora was going the right way technologically, but got somewhat bogged down, is not quite up to snuff yet and maybe not yet quite suitable and/or ready for a large scale network incorporating non-techy people.

I think I'm with djpsyche in that nowadays you'd expect minimum events, direct private messaging for it to have any chance. Ello hasn't got either. It's a bit like App.net with perhaps even fewer features.

When I was 16, I was passionately into the Beatles!

I signed up to Ello but haven't done anything there. I'm basically just holding onto it in case they do kick me off Facebook.

1- That was, of course, before you heard McCartney's solo work, I take? :D

2- there was a big flurry of activity at first and now it's gone completely quiet. It doesn't look like those venture capital investors are going to get their money back in a hurry.

What are you doing that puts you in danger of kicked off Facebook?
