    Who uses Zurker? What's it like compared to Facebook/Twitter?

    Pretty straightforward question. I just heard about it tonight and I'm interested to know if it's worth picking up an invite... Or getting excited about it in any way.

    I use Zurker all the time (written a hub about- thanks for the reminder I need to update it!) I find it a great place to hook up with interesting people from all over the world. It now has (from memory) about 375,000 open accounts worldwide.

    The main attractions for me:

    No adverts
    Spam tightly controlled
    Owned by its members
    Simple but effective appearance and functionality
    Over 18's only and it has a grown-up feel to it
    You control your data
    Great approach to privacy and freedom of speech

    Negatives

    Tiny compared to FB- difficult to get your family and friends to join
    No search or chat facility (under development)

    On balance I'd say definitely worth a look- just Google "Zurker Invite" to find an invite.

      Thanks for your great answer! I also checked out your review and I have to say I'm pretty sold at this point. Definitely sounds better than Facebook... Now to find that invite smile
