Facebook Alternative Path Adds Depth to Social Networking

By Christina DesMarais, PCWorld Feb 5, 2012 8:02 AM

Facebook's rollout of Timeline and the privacy concerns that go along with it could drive some users down a less-traveled path.

For those who like sharing what they're doing with friends, there's a mobile app you probably haven't heard of that may be a good alternative. It's called Path, and it has been getting great reviews and quite a bit of press with tech media since it launched a redesign two months ago.

There are a couple of reasons.

First, it's trying to be a social network that is more personal, one in which your friends are actually people you currently have in your life. In fact, when the app launched, it only let you have 50 friends, although now that number has been bumped up to 150. This is in contrast to Facebook, which lets you amass hundreds of "friends" if you want them, but in actual practice many of these people are sometimes far from it.
