What I’m up to
Ping.fm –> Seamlessly integrated the multiple social networks under one account. It supports posting (status updates, microblogs, pictures, etc) to your social networks and says you the hassle of individually visiting each website to update your status. One word: awesome. 🙂 I’ve been using a lot of it and I’m pretty sure this will be on frequently visited bookmarks list. Its main focus is keeping all your social networks updated with your status and that fulfils a need in my book.
Gist –> This service can be described as “your inbox meets the web”. As you may know, I currently have Xobni installed on my computer which gives me a nice history of all my emails, attachments exchanged as well as providing information on the people I email with e.g. their facebook page, linkedin page, et cetera. However, Gist goes beyond that. It gives you news on the people you’ve corresponded with (similar to the information contained in a Google alert) and I’m pretty much hooked on it right now. Your data is stored on their secure servers, but as always, weigh the risks with the benefits. They are in a private beta stage right now, but I was able to get an invite (thanks to Twitter!). Feel free to get in touch with RobertatGist on Twitter.
That’s all for now. I’ve got a bunch of screenshots that I’ll put up on Flickr and this post will be updated accordingly. 🙂 Cheers!
