Path Exceeds Three Million Installs. Facebook Exodus Inevitable? - Page 2
2) It's limited.
150 friends — can you handle that? This limit is based on something called Dunbar's number, which Wikipedia describes as anthropologist Robin Dunbar's suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships. This means, with Path, you will actually know who each person is, and how each person relates to every other person. There is no friend request whoring, impersonal networking, brand pages from multi-nationals attempting to feign hometown reliability, and there's zero iPhone scams/contests. Your data is also used in a limited capacity. On Facebook, your profile stealthily profiles you instead with "relevant" ads, whereas on Path there are zero ads (fun fact: In Soviet Russia, Facebook profiles you!). That was a joke. Moving on.
3) It's not complicated to keep it private.
Privacy is streamlined and built in thoughtfully into the status update process. It's a stark contrast to Facebook where privacy controls were built re-actively after much ballyhooing. With Path, you can even share to your feeds on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Foursquare if you so desire. Nice.
Hopefully a year from now Path will be well known, but such can't be without your involvement. Start a Path today by downloading the app for iOS and Android today. ¡Viva la Revolución!
