|Social networks continue to be all the rage although frankly I am getting bored with them. I was on a Facebook kick for a while and now I have reverted back to MySpace. I also have profiles at a number of other communities including LinkedIn, Yahoo Kickstart, Sphinn and a number of others. Some of these social communities I visit more than others. Some I just visit to see what they are all about. (By the way feel free to add me on any of the social networks listed above.)
It has come to the point where I have difficulty in keeping track with all of the social networks that I have a presence in. So it was great to hear about Mahalo Social and their multi-profile service that allows you to aggregate your social networks. The multi-profile service allows you to organize accounts in Pownce, MySpace, StumbleUpon, Digg, Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, LinkedIn, and even your blog. The platform will allow users to access most major social networking sites within Mahalo itself.
We've discussed social network aggregators before with MyLifeBrand another service that lets user’s aggregate social networking memberships and navigate between them from the one place. So any new technology that can help users organize their social networks and blogs is ok by me.
It's pretty easy to get started. You just have to add your user name or user ID into the boxes provided, and it then pulls your profiles from each service. You will want to make sure that you use the full URL when entering your information for social networks such as LinkedIn and Facebook. Once set up, you can you can visit each page via tabs on Mahalo itself.
You can expect to see more of these types of services. There is still quite a buzz around social networking. Rumors persist that Google is working to reinvent online social networking as well with a project called Socialstream. One things for sure, social networking continues to gain popularity which I personally find a bit surprising.
