To keep track of all the social media accounts on your Mac would fill a Safari browser full of tabs, each with a separate login ID and password, and each requiring a click to view. Or, you could try a better, faster, easier, cheaper way to manage your social media accounts in a single Mac app.
It’s priced right. It’s simple to setup and use. And it comes with just one problem.
Socialize Like A Pro
For awhile I’ve been trying to minimize my efforts to keep track of family, friends, and co-workers. Pretty much everyone is on Facebook and Twitter, but Google + is making a few anemic strides. And, yes, nearly everyone has a Gmail account.
Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a single app that handled all the above? There is. It’s called Social. It’s an inexpensive Mac app that auto logs into Facebook, Twitter, Google +, and Google’s Gmail. One app. One tab for each social media service.
See? It looks like Facebook but with a tab for Gmail and Twitter and Google +.
It works as you’d expect. For example, with Facebook there’s the Wall, Photos, Notes, Friends, and more.
The Twitter tab looks a bit different, of course, but still gives you the Twitter stream and other options.
Even Google + and Gmail work the same way. Click their respective tabs and a window pops up with all the controls you need for each. There’s even an option for Google Talk, and Social also handles multiple accounts.
Social is straightforward to setup and use, and saves you time because all the social sites and email are just a tab click away.
Here’s the problem. Social is inexpensive, but is limited to only Facebook, Twitter, Google +, and Gmail. If you use Pinterst or something else, then you’re forced to use the browser to login.
Social does come componentized. For less than half the price of the whole package (about the same as a trip to Starbucks), there’s a Social for Facebook, a Social for Twitter, and so on. So, if you want, you won’t spend much money to get just the component you need. Unfortunately, there are far more social media networks out there that Social doesn’t tap into.
