AVG Technologies has released its free social desktop app MultiMi with a major update from its latest beta version, saying it is a safe way for people to manage their online social networks.
MultiMi is a social media integrator that helps people stay in touch through different social networks, whether it’s Facebook, email, Twitter, LinkedIn or other social platform.
Users can drag a tweet into an email while simultaneously updating their Facebook status or move a photo from email into Flickr or Picasa. Not only does MultiMi help users to seamlessly integrate multiple channels, it protects people’s online activity with AVG’s LinkScanner technology.
”The post-beta MultiMi incorporates a year’s worth of performance enhancements and feature requests we received from many engaged and active social media consumers,” said Eidan Apelbaum, CEO of Zbang It, creator of MultiMi. “Our testers did a great job providing us exactly the feedback our developers needed for us to evaluate, update and elevate the platform as compared to competing solutions.”
Improvements resulting from the beta testing include a major aesthetic overhaul, ability to edit and save photos from various sources, a new built-in RSS reader with support for Google Reader and Pocket, as well improved browsing performance thanks to its built-in Chromium-based browser.
“As people spend more time online and use multiple platforms to engage with one another, we are constantly searching for ways to simplify, improve and better secure their online experience,” said JR Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies. “With MultiMi, AVG offers users the tools to get the most out of Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. Whether they want to post commentaries, tweet news, share holiday photos, or post images of a new fascination – MultiMi makes the process fast and safe. With AVG’s LinkScanner security technology, MultiMi protects a user’s personal information from the worst of the Web’s threats.”
