The problems, however, are many:
2) I don’t own an iPhone. I understand that there is an infatuation with iPhones out there, but last I checked Android ownership has surpassed iPhone ownership, so why on earth would someone launch a new social network without an app for both?
3) The website. After registering and logging on, this is what I see. Wow. Underwhelmed. Don’t know what to do. Really…can’t do anything.
Since there’s no Android app and no website to check out, I think I’ll go check Facebook.
Update: 11/1/2010 – Checked back this morning to see whether yesterday’s odd behavior of Path was a fluke. Unfortunately, it looks like it was no fluke. When I clicked the link to leave feedback for the site admins, this is what I got. Pretty sure this site isn’t ready for launch…let alone being a contender with social networks like Facebook.
Updated: 01/18/2011 – Apparently Path has added emoticons to their new all-Apple social network, allowing people to assign smiley faces or frowny faces to their posts. Unfortunately, my Path experience is still a big blank screen because I don’t have an iPhone or iPod Touch. Maybe the next code investment should be in an Android app.
