Born in 1970s Norway?

I just joined the “Unlike 99.9% of the Facebook population, I was born in the 70s” network”, only to find that once you get past page 1 or 2 of the profiles, everyone seems to be from Norway? Wasgoingon?

Flirt in 23 characters. (That *was* 23 characters!)

So I have been having some free fun on iilwy. That’s I’m In Like With You. It is a kind of social network but you make contact by playing games with each other, which basically amounts to Q&As thrown at each other in 23 characters.

It’s a competition, a chase, a game – where you make up the rules of attraction, and you choose the winner. And if you’re playing someone else’s game, send charming messages, photos and video their way – and then bid to show you’re really interested. You have a limited number of points, so the more you bid, the more you’re in like. When the game is over, one lucky winner is chosen. Only then can you trade messages.

It fun! I have a fine collection on my “watch” list. Leave a comment if you want an invite – I think I still have some left.

Widget worlds

Now I am getting more and more convinced* by those who proclaim that this year will indeed be the year of the widget, if this is true. According to TechCrunch, MySpace may be about to snap up a young widget outfit called Flextor which lets people create their own blog badges, if you like, out of their stuff – photos, images, video etc. Sounds like some fun.

Has quite a girlie appeal I feel… Which isn’t always a bad thing btw!

* I keep coming across people talking about them, as well as seeing cool stuff on other people’s blogs.
