I see Seesmic
I just downloaded the social media dashboard Seesmic. I originally had it launched in the web but once I went to the site to log in, I thought, “Why not download the desktop version and give it a shot?” So I did. I went through the short tutorial when I started up the app to get a feel for what Seesmic could do. I linked to my Twitter account and began to click on the different categories in the left hand tool bar.
The “channels” and “marketplace” categories are of no interest to me but the “directory” is pretty useful; it tells me who is on twitter that I can follow pertaining to celebrites, music, sports, and other groups. But when it comes to columns, I especially like the “sent” one. I never know for sure if my tweets are sent out correctly when I use dashboards so I find myself using the real twitter website to look at my profile, as backup. The “sent” column allows me to see whether or not the tweet was actually sent.
How do I feel about Seesmic vs. TweetDeck (my all time fav)?
Well for one, they both do that annoying notification update in the right hand corner of the screen, until you deactivate it of course. But side by side they both perform the same functions. Tweetdeck allows you to record video but doesn’t have the “sent” column I’ve fallen in love with.
In the end I believe It all depends on what the user is looking for in a dashboard and which layout you’re most comfortable navigating.
