NuffnangX

So, the big mystery has been unveiled!

NuffnangX is a mobile manifestation of the Nuffnang community with a lil bit of social networking thrown in. It is designed to encourage interactivity with other bloggers and make reading blogs easier!

You can access it via NuffnangX.com or, if you're using either an iPhone/Android, you can download the mobile app. But you have to log on to the site if you're planning to claim your blog as the function is not available on the mobile app which is odd because it is first and foremost a mobile application, is it not? Although that could just be one of those kinks that have yet to be ironed out.

To claim your blog, all you have to do is log in with your existing Nuffnang account and click on your name at the top right corner and choose "claim your blog" from the menu like so:


And it guides you through on what to do. Pretty straight forward.

NuffnangX is going to revolutionize the word 'stalk' because it's tagline is 'social blog stalking' and you get to stalk blogs and favorite posts, kinda like instagram meets bloglovin'.

I actually thought that NuffnangX would be a social networking site for bloggers which features new, up and coming bloggers and maximizes exposure for everyone instead of just the established and famous bloggers. But hey, who knows? It's still a baby so let's watch and see what it grows into!

Update: 27/09/12 I have a suggestion! Create a live chat platform like IRC for all NuffnangX members that can be accessed in the app! That way, those that are interested in interacting with other bloggers or readers can do so anytime, anywhere on their smartphones! It will also encourage people to use the app more actively. The chatrooms can either be sorted by category (automobile, fashion, personality) or regions (Malaysia, Singapore, Australia) if it ever gets too popular. ;) Obviously I think it's a great idea (since it's mine LOLOL) because it targets a niche audience (bloggers/blog readers) so there won't be any of those perverts or unwanted spammers!

Anyway, I'm currently only stalking 3 blogs on NuffnangX - doesn't take a genius to figure out they are XiaXue, Cheesie and Bong Qiu Qiu. Wendy cos she is undisputedly my all time favorite, I love her opinions and appreciate her honesty and brashness (I know this doesn't really sound like a compliment, but in a world full of people faking their kindness and sugarcoating their words... It's my way of saying she's REAL). Cheesie is out of loyalty actually cos I used to really like her back when she wasn't so famous and now she's getting boring (sorry) and irrelevant (not all Malaysians understand Japanese and you never make an effort to translate but I know you're busy so we can't really blame you but if you ever read this I hope you understand why you're becoming irrelevant to a Malaysian). Qiu Qiu purely because she's Wendy's friend and Wendy speaks so highly of her hahaha but I'm starting to like her a little bit cos she just exudes positivity and happiness! Ok, that was kinda uncalled for. But the bottom line is... I don't really know many blogs, so if you'd like me to check out your blog and perhaps gain a new stalker, leave me a comment! Don't forget to stalk me on NuffnangX! :)
