Flock is a web browser that is dedicated to helping you keep up with all of the social media tools you are using, in one place. I am sure I have not discovered all of it is secrets yet, but for someone like me it is pretty helpful.
All day I get questions and comments and links posted to twitter and facebook that I need to watch. I also need to keep an eye on the bloggers and blogs for mentions of the institution. It is nice to have one place where I can go to see all of that content that I am interested in.
I have found a few things about it that I don't love. It takes some time to configure your settings. It took me at least 2 days to customize it for my needs. It does not seem as fast with my twitter updates as other tools. I would also like it more if it kept me logged into everything, instead of having to log back into everything every time I close the browser.
If you have always dreamed of having just one place where you can manage and monitor all of your social media communications, then I would recommend that you give it a try. If you spend less than 20% of your day in social media spaces, I wouldn't bother.
Tip! If you use firefox, you can keep up with twitter and facebook just as easily by installing twitter fox, and the facebook browser app.
I know that a few of my twitter followers did download Flock, What do you think? Please share your experience.
