AVG, one of the leaders in security software, officially launched their desktop social application called MultiMi. MultiMi is designed as a way of getting all of your social services in one place and controlling them with the added security that AVG is known to offer. For someone managing many of different email, social, photo and chat services, this free program is a great choice.
The purpose of MultiMi is two-fold. The first reason it exists is to give you a place to link and keep up with all of your favorite services. The services supported include, but are not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, Google Reader, YouTube, and Flickr. Most services with large user bases are available (Google+ is missing, but they do not have an open API). If you hate going to multiple apps and websites to keep up with everything, you will love MultiMi.
The second reason for the creation of MultiMi is safety. AVG is a company primarily known for making security software, and they have implemented security measures in this app. This means you can browse the latest happenings on all these services with peace of mind.
On security, JR Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies said, “. . . With AVG’s LinkScanner security technology, MultiMi protects a user’s personal information from the worst of the Web’s threats”.
If you are looking for a new place to manage your social networks safely, this might be the next big thing.
