Get Updated with Your Social Streams with Streamy

Most people nowadays spend their time communicating via social networks. We always find ourselves juggling between these networks: Twitter, Facebook, Digg, Flickr, FriendFeed, AIM, GoogleTalk, Yahoo, and Live. If you prefer a web-based app, you should give Streamy a try.

Aside from the major social networks mentioned above, Streamy gives you News Feeds, your Feed Subscriptions, Saved Stories, and Shared Stuff, aside from being on the Streamy social network itself.

The default Streamy home page shows you an categorized index of news, from Business & Finance to Technology. You have a news feed on the second column, and the third column shows you your Streamy status and chats, as well as your IM accounts.

You can personalize your home page by adding widgets and columns. For me, I added the Twitter Mentions and Facebook Home widgets.

Streamy is a nice web app that really helps you get up-to-date with your social networks, all in one tab of your favorite web browser. (If you prefer a desktop app, you can also try Yoono Desktop (see my Twitter Apps and Tools article). (^-^)

The real advantage of using Streamy is that you can use it on any computer, any web browser, and any operating system. You don't need to install anything on the computer you are using, so you can catch up with the social even on public computers, such as libraries and i-cafes. (Don't forget to logout! Lol.)

How about you? What web app do you use for keeping tabs on your social networks?
