What is Person Folder?
Person Folder lets you keep track of your friends and connections the way YOU want.
Its a brand spanking new social networking site; users may create a personal profile, both public and private, add other users as friends and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. Additionally, users may join common interest user groups, organized by workplace, school, or college, or other characteristics. Profiles also have the ability to create full profile page customization and the ability to add a music player.
I joined it today, its still in beta, they are constantly working on it, creating fun happenings, and magic behind the curtains – who knows what might happen!
It appears that Person Folder arrived on the scene after a few people were just fed up with Facebook’s security, hence the slogan.
One thing that I did notice straight away (which is totally different to Facebook, sadly) is that EVERYTHING is set to ME ONLY – then you go to settings and change it to either “friends”, or “everyone” if you want. Which of course is how it should be! :)
I thought that I did have a problem with it, when I went to view public profile – it had information on there that I had kept to “only me” but when I looked at my profile after I’d logged out – it was just as I had set?
This is my profile page, I’ve set up my profile picture and a background (that I created) very easily. Its very simple to navigate around the site, everything is clearly labelled and tagged, and its very smooth and fast. You have folders for photos and music, which are simply uploaded (say no more) – and you can share with your friends via your inbox or your wall.
Its very early days yet for Person Folder and there are so many site features that they are going to be adding:
# add band/artist specific profile options
# add a latest friend requests box to sidebar
# add new messages box to sidebar
# add more customization options for public profiles
# add an advanced user search option
# divide image selection options by category
# add more profile type options
# create a friend suggestion box for sidebar
# add a jobs board
# create a blog section
# create a classifieds section
# create an events section
# create a system to take snap shots from a webcam
# create a system tp take movie clips from a webcam
# create a robust mobile version of site
# add a music voting system
# add a photo gallery view page for friends
# add seemless ajax routines to site functionality
If there was one thing I would like to see, it would be a bit more colour, a bit more razzle; it seems a bit bland. Although I like old – Twitter.com because it is bland and simple? Maybe twitter is different.
I will post an update once I’ve had a full look round, but if you want to join me, that would help, sign up here www.personfolder.com I’m Michelledh.
I am honestly trying not to encourage Facebook to delete my Facebook page; I’m not as big I know but it happened to The BullDog Estate , can you believe that - and as Facebook appear to be looking at my posts from time to time, really – its a bit of a worry! Must be a just a bot alert. So if the page is still there, please like it for me, thanks.
Hope this helps.
