With a constant bombardment of information from all fronts, 21st century life can seem pretty overwhelming. One example: we’re communicating all over the place on the Internet these days. Where generations in the not-too-distant past had the option of telephone or snail mail if they wanted to keep in touch with people remotely, many of your friends today may use a variety of online communication tools, and if you want to talk to them on the networks where they can be found, then you need to have accounts on those networks, too. As an implement designed to keep humanity communicating quickly and efficiently, the Internet can sometimes be a lot more complicated than it needs to be. I feel for the people who still use each service individually because the time wasted and the confusion that’s involved can be rather extreme.
A vast assortment of companies are working on solutions to help bring together a patchwork of all of these accounts, and they’ve had different levels of success. A service called threadsy is another attempt to keep your online communication organized and consolidated, and it offers quite a few options to the overloaded modern human who is just trying to regain some semblance of control over his or her correspondence options.
threadsy, as a free service, not only supports your social accounts like Facebook and Twitter, but it also integrates your email and instant messaging accounts, which is pretty unique. There’s definitely an advantage to seeing everything in one place, and this approach can’t help but make you more productive. If you’ve noticed that you’re complaining about information overload lately, then maybe an account on threadsy is just what the doctor ordered. And if you’ve got several doctors offering second and third opinions, now you can see all of their recommendations, prescriptions, rebuttals, and counter rebuttals all in one place. That’s progress!
