It can be difficult to manage accounts held with various social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. AlertThingy and an Adobe Air application which aims to make things easier by making it possible to update multiple social networks, and keep abreast of the latest happening, from a single interface.
A single program window can be use to post thoughts to Twitter, update your status on Facebook, upload images to Flickr as well as making use of more business-centric tools such as Yammer. An integrated RSS reader can be used to receive the latest news from your favourite web sites while a contact list keeps you informed about which of your friends are currently online, whichever social network they may be using.
All of this could result is being bombarded with more information than you are able to deal with, but a customisable filtering system means that items of interest can be highlighted automatically so you don’t have to search for them. AlertThingy eliminates the need to install multiple programs or visit numerous web sites to conduct you online life, and for this it is to be applauded.
Tightly integrated, AlertThingy neatly brings together a number of social newtorking tools and throws an RSS feed reader into the bargain
