The Big List of Social Aggregators

by Helen M. Overland September 3rd, 2009 

Nowadays, there are far too many social networks out there for any one human being to reasonably interact with. So we tend to pick our favourites and interact with people on the networks we prefer. However, when you have active accounts on more than one network, it can get a bit onerous to keep checking them all for updates.

And so the Social Aggregator was born.

While FriendFeed is probably the most well-known social aggregator, it's by far not the only choice, and there is no lack of options right now.

And so (drumroll please) here's the big list of social aggregators!

Some of these aggregators you can use for monitoring multiple networks, some you can use for pushing out content to multiple networks, and some of these you can use for both.

Have fun!

  1. Great list, I get asked all the time for new aggregators for clients and this list sums it up perfectly. Thank you!

  2. James Danny says:

    This is really a big list of social aggregators and helps the people to easily organise their social networks in single place and get notified of all the events. People generally feel lazy logging into each network separately(Of course I feel much lazy for it) and this list of applications may solve it. Thanks for the post, Helen.

  3. Mark Mccoy says:

    I was wondering how many of the above list has the "do follow" attribute? Great list and thanks for sharing.
