Recently, I’ve encountered doof, a new Web 2.0 service, kind of “new one”… The authors promote it with the slogan: “Have fun playing games and competing in tournaments, pesonalising your profile and expressing yourself”. Then, what actually doof is?
First of all, doof is a fancy website with astonishing flash design (see above). User can adapt the screen according to their needs. Then, users can choose from a wide range of games, including a number of retro ones and classics. Users are given a space to communicate by sending mails, instant messages, virtual gifts. Also, they can create a photo album that can be synchronized with Facebook. Thanks to news feeds, people know what’s going on in their doofish world, who played a game recently, who received a gift, etc. One can give feedback for the authors, suggest possible improvements and failings.
All in all, the authors had a great idea and they succeeded in creating a brand new, very fresh and marvellous Web 2.0 service. I believe that despite doof is games-oriented, it can meet tastes of not only keen gamers, but also people who just like to have fun seeing others and interacting on their social network.
