    I think it’s a great move as well. In general, managing all the social networks is a difficult, time-consuming, and relatively annoying task. It’s high-time more social network aggregators came into existence.

    I think, however, that a fatal flaw with the approach is that they are crawling only public pages, instead of getting in behind the login wall.

    We recently built Snag to do exactly this – meta-search, meta-messaging, and meta-updates.
