moodblast-icon.png To answer the question: What are you doing? Sounds familiar? The eternal question on Facebook or Twitter that is never quite answered. I know of people who constantly change their status messages on MSN messenger. But I can’t even begin to imagine the hassle of logging into ALL my social networks online just to tell the world ‘What I’m doing’.

MoodBlast was recently updated to version 3.0.7. This app just does it all for you. With a mouse-click, it will update all of your statuses on Skype, iChat, Adium, Twitter, Tumblr, Pownce, Jaiku and Facebook. Talk about being efficient!

When using the application for the first time, you’ll need to enter its Preferences menu to input the usernames and passwords for the social networks you want MoodBlast to update. Facebook however, requires authorization, so you’ll need to first log in, then grant MoodBlast permission. After that, it’s pretty smooth sailing.

And instead of always typing your status, you may also grab the song you’re listening to on iTunes by typing !itune and MoodBlast will set your status accordingly. Unfortunately, it doesn’t refresh itself after a song change, so you’ll have to actively type !itune and hit blast again.

MoodBlast is charityware and it’s available for download at Circle Six Design’s website. And oh, it’s Mac only. There is also a web-based alternative, check out HelloTXT.

    Sadly I am not a user of this app, but after reading the article and really discovering it, I may in fact use the app. For I admit I am horrible at updating myself to the world and am always looking for the easiest way to do so.

    On the topic of the brokenstones invite I am hoping to achieve.

    While writing these excessive amount of comments on your post I am participating in the all too common activity of car trouble...

    Try using HyperIM for Windows.. its for Yahoo messenger, Skype, MSN, etc, then use Twitter Plugins for yahoo messenger to change your twitter status and facebook status linked by twitter plugin at facebook.

    I know it sound complicated, but after install 3 programs, all your status is covered.
