All social network at one place - Yoono

Yoono is a powerful socializing  network tool for social geeks. It may be really hectic for many people out there to sign into multiple social sites such as Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, FriendFeed, AIM, Imeem, AIM, GTalk, Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live Messenger on daily basis. Yoono does this all. When installed it places a sidebar into browser which can be customized to suitable size.

Its interface is pretty much like Digsby IM in the sense that it places all the social networks updates in one column.Whenever browser is started it auto signs in all social networks and produces real time updates.

One thing worth mentioning is its search mechanism. Prominent words which are widely used on internet when occur in any social network, are underlined for Wiki, Photos, Videos etc discovery.

Interface is very neatly placed, allowing options for collective or individual feed for any social network or IM. Also if you see any picture, link, video on internet worth sharing, it can be quickly shared on Facebook, Myspace, Flickr etc by right clicking it and choosing 'Share'.

Get Animated Emoticons for Facebook Chat

Emoticons are usually the best way to show your expression or emotions while chatting. Since we all know that Facebook chat is preferred by many users instead of WLM chat or Yahoo!. The biggest advantage is its flexibility. The original interface of Facebook Chat allows a limited number of emoticons.

However Facemood AddOn allows animated moods. There are mainly 5 categories of moods namely My Animated Moods, Black icons, Facebook Classics, Merry X-mas. You can also add sub emoticons from animals, love, beetles, party, travel, games, food and drink.

Install Facemood AddOn for Firefox

Fishbowl Facebook Client for Windows

If you are a Facebook addict and want to bring it to your Desktop, try out Fishbowl. This application is built by Microsoft own developers on Silverlight 4 platform. It allows photo browsing, zoom, photo slideshow, drag drop images and is completely ad free.

It would be great if chat feature is available, for now an online friend is marked with a green spot right next to his name and we can't chat with him. If you click on any page link it will open as a pop link redirected to particular website, and avoids using browser. Furthermore there is no option to delete your own feeds and would be highly appreciated if its embedded in future versions. One thing which is adorable for sure is the orientation of Display pictures.
