It’s all about status updates

SocialWhaleIn the social web, everything is about status updates. It is very cool how easily people from all around the world can share news or anything that matters using social media services, but yet the real time web becomes a serious time waster for the social media fans out there as it is so hard to keep up with so many services in real time.

I don’t know many people who don’t have at least three social media accounts, and the majority of my friends have at least 8 accounts on sites like facebook, myspace, twitter, etc. (I know my friends are geeks like me :) )

Anyway for the Social Whale team social media rehab is not an option so we thought to solve the “real time web” problem with another way. We call it “social media integration” and it is actually a feature that allows you to interact with twitter, facebook, myspace, linkedin, friendfeed and identica from one place (you are guessing right, this place is social whale)

At the moment our service allows you to get status update streams from all the above services, and gives you the ability to post status updates to any of them, or just all of them at once! Of course there are still many things to get done but we are looking forward to have your feedback before expanding our service even further. So if you have any comments or suggestions please let us know. After all Social Whale is a community site and without your opinion it is no fun at all.

We hope this new feature will be welcomed by all of you.

What about posting at twitter, facebook, identica, myspace and friendfeed with one click?

Today we are blogging live from the Vodafone Greece devCamp. To make this event even better we’ve just released a new feature to our application which we are going to insert in our Betavine client at the developer workshop today.

From now on you can use Social Whale to send status updates in all your favorite social networks. At the moment this new feature is available for twitter, facebook, identica, myspace and friendfeed. In addition this new feature allows you to connect to other social networks as well, something that will be used to your extended profile page (the extended profiles is under construction so expect a post here later about it)

For instructions how to use this new feature just watch the video:

What comes up next? Well we are about to play more with social networking services and give you the ability to read your streams from them as you do for twitter now. In other words we will try to expand our service and make it an one stop place for all your social media needs. As this is a feature under development you can help/participate by letting us know of your opinion. Any idea is more than welcome, and after all Social Whale is a community web site, meaning that your opinion really matters to us :)
