If you a social networkaholic then you need to try AlertThingy. This application sits on your desktop, like an instant messaging (IM) program, but instead of getting IMs you get real-time updates from your Twitter, Facebook, etc… accounts. Your friends alerts can now be followed without even opening your web browser or mobile phone. Get their updates straight to this free application that not only works on a Mac but PC.
Tips if you decide to install it:
- Turn off the “show pop-up notification” option if you are following lots of people
- Create groups of people you follow the most
- Organizing alerts by showing all, those directed at you or ones you mark “very interesting” is easy
Try the Social Desktop Program.
