Now that i have spent a few hours using Ping.fm I have to say that it is very very cool. It allows you, from a dashboard interface, to update any number of social networking/blogging sites. I am writing this blog from ping.fm, and it will automatically post to my blog. I can twitter from it, update myspace and facebook. There are more networks you can post to such as AOL, Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger and I am sure there are more planned.
I was desperate to get a beta account and a big thanks go out to those that provided it. I feel a bit more connected now.
Whats the future of Ping.fm? widgets, mobile applications etc, I am sure if they are not there they will be.
2 net apps have really tickled me, twitter and ping.fm. I really like twitter. It's short and sweet, but keeps you in touch. I just have a hard time checking facebook and myspace, but now with Ping.fm I can at least send updates and appear to active on other social networks.
