Whereas before when you can count the number of social networks where you’re friends are into, now you can’t do that anymore. With the explosive growth of social networks, it has been harder to know where you’re friends are in the social network realms and even worst it becomes harder for you to communicate with them. Hopefully, new web application Zup will enable to fulfill its goal of bridging the gap between you and your friends in this chaotic world of web 2.0 and social networks.
Zup is a new web-based messaging service that lets you keep in touch with friends across multiple social networks. I guess that’s pretty self-explanatory. Although it currently works with a handful of social networks just yet, we’re hoping Zup is on its to adding some more. After, most of the current social networks have been in some “Open Social” movement, so we don’t see it difficult for them to adapt other social networks. These social networks include; MySpace, Hi5, Orkut, Facebook and iGoogle (the sandbox version).
As simple as its name is, using ZUP comes easier as well. All you need to do is create an account in Zup, add the application to your social network profiles, and then start adding your friends. Once you have your friends added, you can start sending messages to them via Zup. If you’re friends are already using the application, they can easily receive to your messages and reply quickly. If you’re friends are not yet using ZUP, you can always invite them to join you in Zup.
That’s how simple it is to make your social network messaging a pleasant and more organized one. I don’t see any reason why we all could not use Zup. Likewise, I’m wondering what took them so long to come up with this nice little application?
