As my online “social” life becomes more stratified and difficult to maintain (difficult in the sense that I am lazy and find it laborous to open/login to multiple websites at the same time and interact with people I’m not sure I was ever friends with to begin with) with different websites to check, maintain and update, the promise of one central place to check and manage those various profiles is alluring.
Threadsy wants to be a situation room for everything you check online—email, Twitter, Facebook, and chat services. You don’t just view them, however—Threadsy lets you archive, reply, delete, and otherwise control your web life from one big page.Using the newest APIs from Twitter and Facebook, the no-sign-in-needed OAuth from Gmail, and other webmail offerings, Threadsy is able to give users the same kinds of controls they’re used to seeing in a half-dozen or more browser tabs. That’s a neat aggregation trick in itself, but when you click on a message, you also get a profile view of the sender, compiling everything your social networks and the web knows about them.
Can’t wait to try this out tonight. [via]
