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!


In - These aggregators pull in information from various networks
Out - These aggregators push out information to various networks
Both - These aggregators pull in and push out information on various networks
