Twitter + FriendFeed vs. Jaiku

Posted by: on May 28, 2008 | 2 Comments

A thread sprang up overnight — on FriendFeed, so it’s a little biased. The highlights:

People’s complaints about Jaiku:

  • They hate the interface.
  • It’s too complicated.
  • It’s slow.
  • Community evangelism has been lackluster, so the people just aren’t there.
  • ‘according to rumour, apart from its port to Google AppEngine, it’s now maintained as a “20% time” project.’

Many speculate that Jaiku fits into Google’s Android strategy and we’ll see a location-aware Android client.

Why isn’t Jaiku discussed much as a serious Twitter competitor? I just took another look and I hate the UI. Plus it’s ssslllooowwww. – FriendFeed
