First of all, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, and everything in between takes time to digest, time to participate, and I’m not getting any younger, which means time is officially an important element of my life.
I need an efficient way to be socially involved online. That said, kudos to Apple for embedding Twitter and Facebook into iOS and OS X. It’s a step in the right direction but more is needed. How about embedding Flickr and LinkedIn to start?
If your Mac and iPhone don’t do the social gig as quickly and efficiently as you’d like, and you are developing social fatigue, there’s always Moments, which is like having Facebook with an official Mac app.
Click on the Mac’s Menubar and pretty much everything Facebook is available with a click. Post photos, videos, or update your status– drag and drop.
There’s a built-in Awesomizer to enhance photos, and any video handled in Facebook is handled in Moments. The drag and drop features for photos and files is handy.
Moments is well done, not expensive and easier and more convenient to use than Facebook in a browser. But this is an app that meets yesterday’s needs, not today, and certainly not tomorrow. Why can’t I have a single app that lets me log in and manage and post and upload photos and videos to all social media outlets?
Good idea, right?
Wait. There’s an app that does that already. It’s called a browser.
