QuizUp's latest update turns into a social network for trivia addicts
QuizUp has decided to blur the line between a social network and a trivia game. After receiving serious competition from Trivia Crack, QuizUp is now focusing on the social aspects of trivia game, to – hopefully – allow players to find and interact with people with similar interests.
The main screen of the app is now a kind of forum showing chatter concerning topics that you play most often. In the next tab is a list of active users that you can follow, chat with, or play with. If you do not wish to end up in this tab, there is a privacy setting to block your profile from the perusal of others. A tap on the lightning bolt icon takes you to your profile where you can view a few statistics and charts concerning the topics you play, and wins/loses.
The head of Plain Vanilla Games Corp., Thor Fridriksson, stated concerning the new update: “When you are able to choose your topic, you are really describing one of your interests and interacting with someone who has that in common with you.” QuizUp has been designed to compliment Facebook, which Fridriksson says “isn’t really for meeting new people.”
If you are not already one of the more than 33 million people who play QuizUp, then now is the perfect time to get started. The app now has a web version too, and you can get the Android app from the Play Store.
