Manage all your social networks under one roof

Free service Seesmic Web makes it a snap to access your Facebook, Twitter, and other accounts on a single page

As you learned in last week's write-up of Meebo, the browser-based instant messaging service, I love apps that can live on the Web instead of having to clutter up my PC.

For example, suppose I want to manage all my social networks -- Facebook, Twitter, etc. -- from a single, time-saving portal. There's a program called Seesmic Desktop that lets me do just that -- but it's one more thing to install, one more program consuming precious system resources.

That's why I prefer Seesmic Web, an online version of the tool. Nothing to download, nothing to install, just one-click access to my social networks. It's free, easy, and fabulous.

Seesmic Web supports Facebook, FourSquare, Google Buzz, LinkedIn, PingFM, and Twitter. All you do is sign into one or more of these accounts and presto, you can read, respond to, and create status messages. Everything is organized into columns you can add, remove, and/or resize as needed. I especially like the way you can toggle between black and white backgrounds.

The service was recently updated to include a couple business-friendly features, including scheduled status updates, support for unlimited Facebook accounts, and integration with the Klout influencer-ranking service.

All told, Seesmic Web is pretty slick, and a worthwhile destination for anyone tired of bopping back and forth between Facebook, Twitter, and the like.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
