Social Network Aggregator/Social Stream – Follow-up

Several weeks ago I wrote about Social Network Aggregator tools. Since then I have been heavily utilizing my iGoogle setup as my preferred aggregator. However, this week I stumbled across a new tool, “SKIMMER“, that works on my both Mac/PC and connects to the more popular networks (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flikr). For the most part, Skimmer has the features for social networking but is a little bugging while establishing connections to each of the services.

What is really interesting about Skimmer, is that has been developed by a marketing firm. So I am sure it is a matter of time before you start seeing advertisements showing up on the Skimmer interface.

Update
After making this post I came across another aggregator for the Mac environment. “Eventbox” comes from the folks at Comic Machine. It provides access to Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, News Feeds, and Google Reader. What’s nice about this aggregator that its interface has the feel of an email in box plus the features of a life stream.
