Mac: If you’re a member of multiple social networks, it can be difficult to keep track of them all at once. Free app Socialite organises your feeds from Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Flickr and even Google Reader into one convenient client.
With all the services out there today, it may sometimes feel like you have a hundred clients running at once (or a hundred sites to visit). Socialite takes the standard three-pane interface we’ve come to know and love and plugs in a number of services, so you can get all your news in one place — whether it’s the latest article from your favourite software blog or your friend’s new photos on Facebook.
The app contains a lot of preferences that let you customise your experience, such as which categories are shown in the left pane, which categories produce dock badges and Growl notifications, and choose how often you refresh on a service-to-service basis. You can also upload photos to any of the services’ photos features, like Flickr albums, tweets and Facebook albums. If you use, say, Twitter or RSS for work, it may not be super productive to put them in the same window as Facebook and Digg, but if you find yourself overwhelmed with all the sites you visit for fun each day, Socialite is a pretty convenient way to combine them. Hit the link to try it out.
Socialite is a free download for Mac OS X. There is a $US30 version that removes the ads in the lower left corner, although the ad-free version is available for free today only at MacHeist, so grab it while you can.
