Master of All Distractions

Digsby

Let’s accept it, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace are all just big distractions. You log onto FB and then you go onto Twitter and then you realize you have a MySpace account too and so on… but wait… now there is something else that will provide you all the distraction right on your desktop. It is called Digsby and I love it!

Digsby is a nifty little software that reminds me of ICQ because of its vertical rectangular layout that floats on the right of your monitor. Don’t worry, it is nothing like ICQ, it is 10 times better!

Digsby = Social Networking + Email + Instant Messaging

You can now save most of your time by having everything in one place right on your desktop. You now have no excuse not to be distracted.

Instant Messaging
AIM, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber, and Facebook Chat Accounts all in one place. If you have two MSN IDs, you can use both at the same time.

Email
Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL/AIM Mail, IMAP, and POP accounts. Be notified when new email arrives, add as many email accounts as you want.

Social Networking
Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn accounts. This is the main reason I use Digsby because I am hooked to Twitter and Facebook. It also allows me to manage my three Twitter accounts.

Chat
Easily place a widget on your blog, website, or social network profile so you can chat with visitors’ right from digsby.

To sum it up, Digsby is a great tool if you spend most of your time being lost in the sea of social networking website and have a strong urge of updating your status or profile all the time.
