My unsocial setup

by Volker Weber

These are the most used apps on my iPhone (full screen here). Phone, Mail, Safari, Sonos, Sports Tracker should be obvious. But what about the rest - how do I use the other three social networks?

There you go. No party pics, no happy talk, no birthday wall posts. My unsocial setup.


schreibe ich sonst nicht, aber heute ausnahmsweise doch: danke für followen auf twitter.

Bravo! As Alan said, it's all about what works for you. The next time I see a picture of someone's lunch on Facebook I'll remember this. I've not looked at Path, but downloading now (iPod edition). And I'm not upset that I'm not one of the 42 (or 40, as it happens).

I would love to use Path like you do. The problem for me would be getting that collection of people all using Path (90% of them are on Facebook). FB serves as a catchall for so many different "categories" of people in my life - it does it in a very sloppy manner, but there's no speed bumps getting people started - most everyone is already on it.

Kevan, Path is more intimate. You can see when somebody else sees your post. They have more emoticons than (Like). It does post certain things automatically, like when you arrive at a different location. It does not resemble Facebook at all.

Darren, you are a Windows Phone user. Path does not work there and I would not recommend it to you. For Windows Phone, Twitter and Facebook are the only viable options.

Felix, Du bist ja interessant. ;-)

Path was really cool until I was apparently doing it wrong :-)

Most likely I was trying to eat less. ;-)

Path works on an iPod touch, doesn't it?

Darren Adams, 2012-06-07

It does. You are just unlikely to have success with Path if it's not on your primary device.
