Refreshed design and visual clues for important messages

Managing multiple social networks can be a complete struggle sometimes. We've made sure that this does not happen in Seesmic Web! Ease of navigation and an intuitive UI is important especially when you want to manage and update both social and professional networks simultaneously. Here are some improvements that will help make your Seesmic Web experience a little bit easier:

  • New color coding of Direct Mention Tweets - notice the blue color on the left next to the tweet? This is to help distinguish this as a direct mention to you so this doesn't get lost among the endless amounts of other posts. 

                         
Twitter Mentions - Seesmic Web 

  • New Reply Menu, with direct access to Retweet and Reply – When you hover over the lower right side of each tweet, you'll see a set of three buttons to choose from to easily reply directly to the tweet, Retweet this tweet, or click on the Options icon to view other actions available.

  • Yfrog support – Want to vary your picture posting networks? You can select to post from Yfrog or Tweetphoto support.

  • Survey - One of the first things you will probably notice is the pop up survey, please help us out as we continue to make improvements catered to your needs by letting us know how you use Seesmic Web!

Chrome HTML5 Desktop Notifications

Sound notifications not enough for you? Well if you are using Google Chrome you are in luck as you'll have the option to Enable Desktop Notifications. Click here and a notification popup will appear on your desktop screen every time you receive Mentions and Direct Messages. Now you'll never miss an important tweet in Seesmic Web!

But we could not do it without our great translator community! We'd like to thank all our users, especially @Manveru1986, @seanchoe, and @roti, for continuing to help us with translations so that Seesmic Web is accessible in much more languages. We do have a long way to go in order to cover absolutely everything, but please enjoy these newly added translations:

  • Indonesian                 
  • Korean
  • Polish
  • Dutch
