I just started using two new applications: TweetDeck and Flock. I love them both. Some of the functionality overlaps, but there are aspects about both that I really like.
Blog Composition – You can compose your blog posts within the browser. When you are done, you choose which blog you want to post to. It supports multiple blog clients. I use WordPress and Blogger for my blogs. When you publish you can choose the tags and categories as well as publish it to your Facebook status.
Media Bar – I don’t really use this that much, but it seems pretty cool. It detects any media feeds from any page that you are on.
Favorites – Sync up with Delicious.
Link Sharing – You can share any page that you are in from the Facebook sidebar.
Searching – The search bar shows you real time results from multiple search engines. You can add any search engine from any site such as Facebook.
Mail – See if you have new mail right in the sidebar
RSS – You have a reader right in the sidebar. The browser also detects feeds that are available on pages. (Most browsers do this). You can organize your feeds into categories and folders however you please right there in the sidebar.
There is also a drag ‘n drop web clipboard and a utility to upload photos directly to Facebook, Flickr, Photobucket or other media sharing sites.
I just barely downloaded TweetDeck and I am impressed. Multiple Twitter accounts, Facebook, Facebook Pages, LinkedIn and MySpace. Notifications pop up as they arrive on the side of your screen. You can post to multiple accounts at the same time, shorten urls automatically, upload photos and more. Check it out.
These are great tools.
