Word of the Week: Digsby
Digsby: For the social media enthusiast who is feeling spread too thin, Digsby is the perfect tool for integration. With one free account and a quick software download, Digsby users can combine all of their IM buddies from AIM, G-chat, MSN, etc. into one buddy list; manage multiple e-mail accounts from Gmail, AOL and Yahoo! as well as POP and IMAP accounts; and integrate social networking accounts from Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn. From the Digsby platform, you can tweet, IM, compose and reply to e-mail, and perform just about any other function that each service offers. Users can also set a global status for their Digsby account, which will simultaneously act as a tweet, a status update for Facebook, LinkedIn, etc., and an away message for each IM account that is being used.
