I don’t know about you but I am involved on multiple social networks on a daily basis. The key to having success on these social networks is being involved and contributing value to other community members. Managing a couple of social networking account is not that difficult, but one you add a few more to your list, you are going to struggle to keep up with all the discussions going on. There is just not enough time in a day to handle more than a few social networking accounts. AlertThingy – Friendfeed is a cool social networking application for iPhone that lets you get the most out of all your social media accounts by keeping you informed about the latest updates.

You get updates from social bookmarking sites such as delicious, StumbleUpon, and Twine as well as news sites such as Digg, Mixx, and Reddit. Best of all, you get to manage and monitor your FriendFeed account right on your phone.


AlertThingy lets you get your latest data stream, post comments, updates, links and photos on your phone. You can also manage the groups that you are a part of and subscribe to other people’s streams. You can also like and unlike items easily on your phone. I find the interface to be very intuitive and very easy to use. Making updates to my FriendFeed account was easy too! Overall, AlertThingy is a feed reader on steroids.
