App.net or Ghost town?

I just thought about trying out App.net I mean $5 is not an issue to try it if it has great conversation and threads, right?

The place seems dead. Is anyone else using it? I'm at https://alpha.app.net/sulcalibur if anyone is on there. I'll try it out and see how it goes for the month and I'll let you know in 30 days :)

Feel free to message, add, follow etc :)

I'm very active there (my username there is the same as it is here). Follow the right people, and you will see that is is far from being dead.

@Treehouse is very much so dead there. Very depressing :(

The only Treehouse people there that I know of (besides for yourself) is me, and @reply (Ian Carroll).

Groovy cheers dude. I hoping to steer away from Facebook and Twitter as there seems to be way to much noise and it's hard to filter out the quality.

Not to sound too much like a Google/Android fanboy, but Google+ is thriving. The new Communities feature is awesome, and as @Paul mentioned, following the right people is key.

Check out this article about why The Google+ Long Game is Brilliant.


I actually really REALLY like Google+ I was more of thinking G+ instead of Facebook and App.net instead of Twitter or maybe I'm thinking to hard about this all :/

I'm on ADN under the handle @taylorb. It's definitely hard to see the activity when you aren't following the right people but it is active.
