yeah trouble is i think people are too invested in facebook.
my problem with facebook is its become to cluttered with too many people to have to keep in touch with. Id say only 20% of the actual people I have on my facebook are actually active users or keep in touch with. Posting images, videos, links on facebook has gone stale for me as well because there are times i feel i dont even wanna share the content to people who arent even really that close to me ( ie. old highschool friends who never really talked to you in school but knew you or co workers in that same sort of fashion )
Path is still at its early stages and I really dig the interface. Hopefully the next couple of versions will pave the way to making the app more attractive to other users. Im planning to use alot more of the app for 2012 .
I think if Path somehow merged with instagram ( with all the tools and such ) -- that'd be one less app to click on the iphone homescreen ...
