Multiple Social Network Messages

This has been an interesting week for messaging and communications – I had business development chats via LinkedIn messages (obvious), Facebook, Twitter (direct messages), Quora and via a chat in a game of Words with Friends. Of course this is in addition to IMs and emails, and of course the ubiquitous SMS messages we all trade in large numbers these days.

There are quite a few socially-connected services with messaging components; and it is sometimes difficult to keep all of it well coordinated. Of course there are services like Threadsy that “pull things together” for you but the configuration/lining up of all these things is going to be time consuming and probably kills adoption on the user level. Oh well.
