So there’s a new browser available, called Flock. I’m experimenting with it, and so far I like it a lot. It integrates blogging (yes, it handles LiveJournal), photo-sharing (works with photobucket and flickr), and social media (handles tribe.net and facebook). It even handles social bookmarking like Delicious and Digg and suchlike, all integrated into the same system. News, such as from NPR and
the New York Times, is also integrated, which means you can drag-and-drop news stories and send them to people on Facebook automatically. You can also drop pictures from your Flickr feed into blog entries the same way, just as I’ve done with the attached photo of the Sunwheel at UMASS-Amherst. All of these features are integrated into the main browser system, and you can create bookmarks and favorites list. It also is capable of learning whether a new site is a news-oriented site and ask whether it should grab the RSS feed, or whether it’s web2.0 social media, and it should integrate your friends/co-users into your learning network. I am, quite frankly, impressed. I am so impressed that I am suspiciously looking around for some serious negative to using this software. Does anyone know of one?
