Last week, Yoono (the browser sidebar/desktop add-on that allows you to connect your social networking and instant messaging profiles all in one place) reached 3 million downloads. That’s a gigantic number, but it also says there are plenty of us out there who aren’t using it yet.
For those of us constantly monitoring social networking and instant messaging platforms, Yoono is an incredible time-saver. Not only does it monitor your friends and the people you’re following, but it allows you to update your status in bulk or on individual profiles.
Personally, I just have Yoono synced up with my Facebook and Twitter accounts, and I leave my chat client to handle things like AIM and Google Talk. Yoono streams updates into your Firefox/IE sidebar, leaving you free to do other things. You don’t need to check your profiles constantly to see if anyone recently posted some interesting or relevant content.
It’s also great for monitoring multiple accounts to make sure the tweets and updates you send out are typo-free and have a working link in them. If there happens to be a mistake, it’s an easy remedy with the streaming sidebar.
Click here to check Yoono out for yourself. As I stated earlier, it’s available as a browser add-on or a desktop application. I highly recommend getting your hands on the browser add-on. You’ll be amazed by how much time you save.
