Yoono Desktop is a tool that aims to centralize your social network activities.
You've probably heard of HootSuite or even Echofon. Yoono Desktop is very similar in nature and is a great alternative if you're still on the look-out for a great way to connect to multiple social network accounts at once.
To set up Yoono Desktop, you must choose the networks with which you have an account and enter your log-in information. The feeds from each are then centralized in the Yoono Desktop interface, with each network represented by a tab across the top of the window. There is a general area, where you can see the status of all your friends and recent updates, regardless of what networks they are on. The remaining tabs in Yoono Desktop represent each of the accounts you have added.
Yoono Desktop offers you various options when it comes to interacting with your followers and friends on various feeds as well, which is a plus. If you want to click through to anywhere that displays more information than the summaries on Yoono Desktop, such as a friend's profile in Facebook, the page will be displayed in the default Yoono browser though. This can get annoying very quickly since it resists most attempts to resize it.
Yoono Desktop is the perfect tool for social networkers who don't have all day to spend checking their accounts.
