Your friends are not all in one social network, but we want to help you stay in touch with them anytime and from any device. That is Seesmic's vision and to deliver this faster, we have acquired Ping.fm. You can now update 50 social networks using Seesmic+Ping.fm from email, chat, sms, Blackberry, Android, web, Windows, OSX and much more soon.
Ping.fm has more than half a million active users who post daily from any device just by sending an email, a text message or chat – simple tools that existed since the early stages of the Internet are available on all connected devices. This is why Ping.fm is extremely easy to use and access –just send an update and it can touch on 50 social networks including Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Ning, WordPress, TypePad, Yammer, Status.net and many more. Ping.fm is compatible with every single Internet device in the world, which why it has become so successful among thousands of users.
Try using chat to update Twitter, and you’ll find it direct and seamless as you can post updates from gtalk, aim or skype through Ping.fm. It's so simple and amazing, and it's always onPing.fm posts 200,000 updates a day and has 500,000 registered users. Rapidly gaining more and more members, Ping.fm is growing at a very fast pace and will help Seesmic reach this year's goal of one million updates a day in 2010. Thanks to its powerful and simple API, more than a hundred applications already use Ping.fm to update all the main social networks and Seesmic commits to maintaining and improving the Ping.fm platform. Not only has Twhirl supported Ping.fm for about a year, but we are also preparing to open Seesmic apps with our own plug-in architecture so we understand and care about the developer community.
Ping.fm co-founders, Adam Duffy and Sean McCullough, are joining the Seesmic team full time and will keep improving Ping.fm as well as integrating it with our Seesmic applications. The number one request from Ping.fm users is to have more powerful clients support postings to their social networks, so they should be pleased to know Seesmic applications will be adding this functionality. Seesmic is also welcoming ping.fm angel investors as shareholders and advisors Joi Ito (@joi), Reid Hoffman (@quixotic) who was already a Seesmic shareholder and Mohamed Nanabhay (@mohamed).Seesmic applications on Blackberry, Android, Web, Windows and Mac OS X via Air will all have advanced Ping.fm integration very shortly and therefore will instantly support 50 social networks. Seesmic users will also be able to update not only with the apps they are used to, but also with Ping.fm's email, sms and chat gateways. Seesmic is now the only social software application available on that many screens and able to update all your favorite social networks. The Ping.fm acquisition enables Seesmic to deliver faster its vision of becoming your default application to stay in touch with your friends and constantly managing your online social presence. Seesmic applications got more than 3.5 million downloads and hundreds of thousands of daily users.
