AVG Debuts Powerful Social Media Integrator
MultiMi is a social media integrator that helps people stay in touch with the people that matter in their life. Whether it’s Facebook, Gmail, Twitter or any other platform, MultiMi lets users stay in touch with one click. They 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 renowned 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
Full home and tab customization
Ability to edit and save photos from various sources
A built-in RSS reader
Support for Google Reader
Support for Pocket (formerly Read It Later)
The built-in browser now uses Chromium instead of Internet Explorer which helped improve performance
“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.”
