Social aggregators comparison table

Launched way back in 2006, Profilactic is the daddy of social aggregators, not least because it’s notched up support for an astonishing 144 services. It also has a decent UI and some nice bits of functionality, including search and filtering of your ‘mashup’ (poor choice of label imo – too many other connotations). I also like the fact that it pulls in decent sized Flickr images rather than thumbnails, although I guess that’s just personal preference and others may feel they take up too much space. Perhaps Profilactic’s most compelling feature (now shared by newcomer socialthing!) is that it automatically draws on your friend lists from the services you add rather than forcing you to add them manually, which removes a massive barrier to take up.

5 stars

    I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the web will be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    When some one searches for his vital thing, therefore he/she desires to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.
