…Socialthing! will manage your online life?


Socialthing! “is a digital life manager that puts what you do online into one place. See everything that’s going on with your friends in all the sites you use, post stuff to multiple places at once and more!”

Basically, it takes your online life and combines it into one easy to read, follow, and update page. Then, instead of checking each site individually to see new messages, updates, photos, etc., you can just check Socialthing! and see them all in one place. The goal is to make interacting across multiple sites as easy as interacting through just one.

Currently, Socialthing! supports del.icio.us, Digg, Facebook, Flickr, Last.fm, LiveJournal, Pownce, Twitter, Vimeo, and YouTube, with plans for more services as the company expands.

I’ve been beta testing the site for the past few days, and I think the service has some definite possibility. Unfortunately I ran into an issue with adding my Digg profile, but issues are to be expected with any beta release, and I’m sure they’ll have things running smoothly in no time. Everything else loaded without issue though, and I was impressed by the speed with which Socialthing! fetched my data.

Overall, I’d say it’s a useful tool that has the potential to become an indispensable one. Lifestreaming is quickly becoming more popular as everyone tries to manage their vast online world, and Socialthing! is one of the first sites out of the gate, which should give them a jump on adapting and changing to meet users needs with new features and functions.

They should be coming out of beta this weekend, so head on over and give it a try.


…Web apps have been charted?

Web App Charts

There’s Flickr and Dopplr, YouTube and DropSend; Zoho, Digg, YMail and Gmail; Facebook, Pandora, Mint and Twitter; and last but not least, there’s Last.fm, (oh, and don’t forget, Remember the Milk!)

They’ve all become a part of our daily online lives, but web based applications are a relatively new thing, which means they’re still vying for top spot on your bookmark list.

Thus, Carsonified set out to find out which are the most popular and successful web apps through a straw poll of over 3,000 votes from all over the world.
