I can’t decide if I am delighted with or repulsed by Formspring as a
new tool. The reaction does not connect to the specific content, but
to the potentials of the platform. Seriously, though, it could be
either.

Formspring seems to be a social networking / microblogging tool that
is a cross between Facebook, Twitter, a confessional, a reference
desk, and the party game “Twenty Questions”. “Ask & Tell” is the
trigger for new posts. People ask some wild things.

This particular example captured my attention with its honesty,
gutsiness and importance. I have to wonder about the potential of any
platform that inspires such a response.
