As a self-diagnosed social media junkie, I have quite a few social networking accounts to manage. Every morning I spend a significant amount of time catching up on tweets and status updates, clicking around from one site to the next – and this is before checking up on the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal… and so on and so forth. If your business has a growing social media presence, then chances are you can sympathize with my multiple account madness. Luckily, there are almost as many social networking aggregators as there are social networking sites. These applications come in both on- and offline forms, and allow you to pull together and sort updates from multiple site feeds in a manner that best suits your interests.
I did some searching and found a neat little application called AlertThingy. Its name may be a little silly (I dare you to say it three times fast without at least a chuckle), but the program itself is nothing to laugh at.
How it works:
Features and benefits:
- Can sort social networking contacts into groups (filtering out that one guy who is always on FarmVille)
- Automatic, live updating with optional desktop news alert pop-ups (which will link you directly to the source, should you want more information)
- Update social networking status or tweet from the program
- Display one solid feed of data or multiple streams from different groups
