What IS ping.fm?
Ping.fm says, “simple service that makes updating your social networks a snap.”
It is a great way to update dozens of your social sites at once, with the click of a button. It really is that simple. I started using ping.fm when they were in beta, and it really worked well, even though there were some typical beta glitches. it has grown since then to be a powerful updating service and communication vehicle to a lot of different social sites and they are adding sites at a very fast clip.
All you do with ping.fm, is think “twitter.” You have 140 characters to say a message that you want to go public, and then type it in, and then click on “ping it!” and you are now being blasted out to all the networks that you have subscribed to.
Yes, you must register for the accounts first before ping.fm will deliver your message to them, but it really has a great system for updating your status and message to the masses.
