Plaxo has launched their new social alerts service, Pulse, that launched earlier this morning. This launch is part of company’s on-going makeover, and trying to find a place in the new social web landscape.
[qi:004] C/Net News.com has a nice review. Pulse has a connections feature, and since morning I have been getting connection requests, that is proving to be a mild irritant. I wish Plaxo gave their subscribers a heads-up so we could tweak our privacy settings, and ignore connection requests.
Frankly, I don’t want any more connections: between LinkedIn emails, Facebook Alerts, Pownce and Twitter requests, my E-Mail InBox is resembling an old Moroccan bazaar.
Also: Wired is calling for social networks to open up and inter operate.
