Chat Easy with Mobile Platforms for Social Apps

Posted on 12 March 2010 by SlimboCA

Accessing all your social networks on your mobile is becoming easier thanks to media platforms.

These days no one really belongs to just one social network. So it makes sense to consolidate these communications, rather than opening a different application everytime you want to update your status or chat to your friends. We found some really cool mobile phone apps which make these tasks possible on one platform.

Meebo is a free iPhone application which simplifies social messaging tasks while you’re on the go. It’s basically a web platform for Instant Messaging (IM) on any network or website. Meebo connects you to MSN, Yahoo, AOL/AIM, MySpace, Facebook, Google Talk, and many more.

Beejive – which costs about $6 to download – seems a more versatile competitor though. It allows you to stay connected to all of your instant messaging buddies on all of your IM accounts, anywhere you go. Two other applications, Fring (which is free) and Palringo ($5), are also worth giving a try. Fring is busy with a feature that creates a live stream of updates from all your social networks on a single screen. Palringo claims to have features that apparently sets it apart from the rest, including a push-to-talk IM capability and the ability to allow group chats.

If there there any other social networking hubs out there that we have failed to mention, please share them in the comment section.
