After much hard work, Seesmic Desktop 2 (SD2) is finally ready to emerge out of beta. The inspiration to build SD2 came from the understanding that our users desired support of many different social services, more than just Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin. And so, SD2 was born. With the plugin architecture in SD2, you can easily add, remove and customize the platform to include only the services that matter to you.
Here's a quick video explaining the awesomeness that is SD2…
At launch, SD2 will contain all of the core services you've come to love like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Foursquare, Google Buzz, Ping.fm, Bit.ly and TwitPic, by default.
Alongside that, is the SD2 plugin marketplace. The marketplace boasts over 40 plugins at launch, with dozens more to join in the upcoming weeks. As you begin browsing the marketplace, you'll notice services like Zappos, Salesforce, Topsy, Klout, Socialcast, MySpace, Formspring, OneRiot, SocialWok, YouTube, Google Reader, Techmeme, Ning and many more — and we haven't even scratched the surface. Don't see a service in our marketplace that you want? Check out our developer SDK for the platform here, and take a stab at building a plugin of your own or have our team help out with development by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, for all of you that were worried that SD2 is only compatible for Windows, we've got good news. SD2 is compatible on both Windows and Mac OS X machines. Yes, both Windows and Mac. Apple fanboys, rejoice.
Now, the fun part. To download SD2 for yourself, visit seesmic.com/desktop. Let us know what you think, we hope you love the new Seesmic Desktop as much as we do.
