    Anyone using this site? Just got my approval so am trying to setup my page.
    Here's my page: http://pownce.com/mfarley/

    Got a page? I'd like to start an OSNN friends networ or maybe even an OSNN F@H network. Alas I'm down to 2 invites but I'll gladly give those out to OSNN peeps.

    Tried it, didn't really see the point, with Twitter and Facebook already active.

    I really hope people start migrating to Pownce once they get a mobile version... or that twitter introduce some of Pownce's features.

    Like what? Pownce's features are already pretty much covered elsewhere.

    The notes and links are no different from posting a tweet to Twitter.

    The file feature is a small bonus as it's locally hosted rather than dumping something on one of the many many file sharing sites out there and events are pretty much covered by FaceBook for me.

    There's the client too, which Twitter has covered via GMail, Jabber or AIM (and now MSN via an external service currently in beta) and the IM client of your choosing.

    Agree with Dave. I'm pretty happy with the Facebook + Twitter combination for the moment. :)

    There are really only two things from Pownce that I'd like to see in Twitter - better conversation threading (the @ system is hacky and gets out of control after a couple of replies), and the ability to restrict individual tweets to a subset of your friends list (groups).

    Anyway...
