  • I just created the official(?) Facebook group for Wordie. Y'all join up now!

  • A word about linking to Facebook from your wordie profile. The "username" needs to be the ID number that you see at the end of the URL when you are on your Facebook profile page.

    (Putting in your real Facebook name or a pseudonym will just result in a click-through to the Facebook Home page, not your profile.)

  • Five Reasons Why Wordie is Better than Facebook

    1. The home page is simple and elegant.

    2. The design doesn't randomly change in ways that remove most of the functionality you've come to value.

    3. It's not trying to be something it's not (unless, in a spirit of whimsy, you count flickr).

    4. It's able to waste my time for longer while leaving me with the vague feeling that I might have been improving my mind.

    5. Did I mention that the design doesn't change?

  • I love both Wordie and Facebook almost equally (Wordie wins by a little bit).

    I use facebook to indulge my teenage girl tendencies, and wordie to let out the logophile within. They complement each other and I would go insane without either one of them.

  • 6) There is no way of adding someone as a friend, and reading their posts only. You are therefore exposed to points of view that are not necessarily the same as yours.

    March 21, 2009

  • I'm not sure I have any friends.

    March 21, 2009

  • That's what Wordie's fooor...

  • I would have taken plethora's stance until the recent redesign of facebook – at which point it ceased to indulge my fantasies of any kind. Very sad.
