Update all your social networks at once

Sites like Twitter have scores of competitors and it is possible that for someone to effectively socially network, they will have to use sites other than their preferred one. It is obviously quite a chore to have to update Twitter, Facebook, Pownce etc separately.

Commenter reactive pointed out, a website which in fact I use. allows you to update one site, through a variety of means, which will then pass those updates on to 32 other websites. amazingly allows updates to be textual or graphical (you can set to upload images to Flickr etc.). The ability to send videos is going to be launched soon.

The site will 'ping' most major social networking sites updates: Twitter, Pownce, FriendFeed, Facebook, MySpace, and Jaiku. Smaller ones like Kwippy are also supported.

Updates can be sent through instant messaging (GTalk, MSN, Yahoo! or AIM), unlike Twitter at the moment, from iGoogle, Facebook, an iPhone, WAP or SpinVox (a service which allows a voice to be converted to text on a phone). This is in addition to email (and therefore MMS, and on some carriers SMS) and the web.

With it's just as quick to update all your social networks as it is one. It is only one way however, and other peoples' updates will not be received using it. Another similar service, which is a little more complex is imified.

Update: Please note that has closed down and is no longer available. There are alternatives available though that you can make use of instead. While they may not work in the same way, the result itself is, as you can push updates to multiple social services from a single website.

Composer supports several high profile networks including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr and WordPress. It is free at the moment but that may not be the case forever, as the company notes on the pricing page on the official website. For now though, you can use the service for free.

Hootsuite is a professional service that comes with a free plan that enables you to post to up to five social profiles. Pro and Enterprise options are available which raise those limits and improve other features such as message archiving, unlimited use of RSS feeds, and the addition of team members.

Onlywire finally is a commercial service that allows you to submit posts to up to 50 networks for $49 per year. It includes tracking and analytics so that you can measure ROI and engagement.

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
