We covered the Seesmic BlackBerry Twitter App back in late November and with this new announcement and acquisition of Ping.fm; it seems Seesmic is making a big commitment in the social networking arena.
Your friends are not all in one social network, but we want to help you stay in touch with them anytime and from any device. That is Seesmic’s vision and to deliver this faster, we have acquired Ping.fm. You can now update 50 social networks using Seesmic+Ping.fm from email, chat, sms, Blackberry, Android, web, Windows, OSX and much more soon.
Ping.fm has more than half a million active users who post daily from any device just by sending an email, a text message or chat – simple tools that existed since the early stages of the Internet are available on all connected devices. This is why Ping.fm is extremely easy to use and access –just send an update and it can touch on 50 social networks including Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Ning, WordPress, TypePad, Yammer, Status.net and many more. Ping.fm is compatible with every single Internet device in the world, which why it has become so successful among thousands of users. Try using chat to update Twitter, and you’ll find it direct and seamless as you can post updates from gtalk, aim or skype through Ping.fm. It’s so simple and amazing, and it’s always on.
Seesmic application on Blackberry via Air will all have advanced Ping.fm integration very shortly and therefore will instantly support 50 social networks. Seesmic users will also be able to update not only with the apps they are used to, but also with Ping.fm’s email, sms and chat gateways.
