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.

  • 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.

    I logged out, logged back in, and saw the new interface. However, when I go to Settings, there are no new options in the dropdown for Facebook and LinkedIn. So, although Facebook and LinkedIn icons are in the sidebar, teasing me, I can’t actually connect to them. What now?

    I found the solution myself. Not only did I need to refresh Seesmic Web, I needed to also refresh the settings page. Now they are listed in the dropdown.

    Very good job. Even the new font color for the white configuration makes text more readable and less sight tiring. Thanks.
    P.S.: You may need to clear cache and cookies to enjoy the new features. (That was my case (Chrome)).

    How do I get to settings page?

    Color coding is really a helpful feature!

    Making life easier than it already is… That is what social networking is all about. I guess there will be some people that can benefit from all these tools. I always say that when things come easy we tend not to appreciate it. But looking at it from a marketers perspective, it may be a great way to increase traffic to a site. http://www.primerealadstate.com/
