I’m sorry to complain, but Myspace’s use of captcha is quite annoying! I only log in to reply to messages nowadays. When I reply, I have usually have to fill out the captcha a few times because it’s so hard to read.

Today I filled it out three times.

SocialThing!

SocialThing!

I just signed up for SocialThing! and I love it so far. The concept is simple really. It’s a website that helps you organize your digital life all in one place.

Socialthing! makes it easy to see all the things your friends are doing. It’s a news feed for every site that you use in one place.

It’s like an RSS reader for everything and anything you and your friends do online. So far, they have Facebook, Flickr, LiveJournal, Pownce, Twitter, and Vimeo connected. There’s also an area where you can vote for what websites they should work on connecting to next. I voted for all the apps I use.

I really love the concept, and I hope this takes off well!
