Profy (still in alpha release) is a new social blogging platform where it enables one to post a new blog entry (duh!), comment on an entry, subscribe to your friends’ feeds whether they are using Profy or not, add friends from the Profy blogosphere. It does not have categories but it has tags like blogger.com. What’s noticeable about this blogging platform is that it has similarity with Gmail’s user interface.
In your Dashboard, you will see your latest posts, latest comments, latest messages and latest items in the feeds that you are subscribed to. However, it would be nice to see a dedicated latest profy news so that users will get updated if there are new features. Also, it would be nice to have an image upload functionality. What I’m thinking is that they could allocate a storage for every user (just like wordpress.com) or limit the monthly uploads.
In the future, I’d expect more widgets to be added . I just hope that they will make the API available and enable users to submit widgets.
By the way, here’s what my profy blog looks like.
