RockMelt-All Your Favorite Social Networks In One

A lot of us love socializing. We go on sites like Facebook and Twitter every day to see what people are posting and to interact with others.

One of the hassles of these popular social networks is that they require you to constantly go back to it and see if someone posted something new. Doing this might actually be killing your productivity and you probably aren’t realizing it.

How do you like being a slave to social networks?

RockMelt is a new browser (Google Chrome) that connects you to Facebook and even Twitter. It lets you be on them without technically being on. I will explain more in a bit.

There are four main things you can do in RockMelt. You can, Share Easily, Search Faster, Connect With Friends, and Keep Up On News. I will cover what each part does so read this article till the very end.

Share Easily

RockMelt allows you to share anything you want and as the name says easily. There is a share button at the top right which makes it even simpler for you to post on FB or Twitter. By clicking on your profile picture on the side you can easily also post a new status on your page.

Search Faster

RockMelt’s search features are really cool. You can type up your friends name inside of search and you can start up a conversation with them or see if they’ve posted anything new.

Also, lets say you type something into the search box, when the possible choices drop down by clicking on them a little window appears and you can see at the Google results there without ever going to Google itself.

Connect With Friends

Along the left side of RockMelt all of your Facebook friends are shown. There you can click on them and talk or see what they’ve posted recently posted or done.

Keep Up On News 
On the right side of RockMelt you will see notifications. It will show if anything new has happened on your Twitter or Facebook accounts. Instead of going directly to the sites it informs you of anything new straight from there. 
Also, it allows you to get updated from other sites too if you’d like.

    Tweetdeck is bad for resources, yeah. Hootsuite's still a good choice though.

    Hi Edwin,
    Looks like a pretty cool edition to chrome. I use Firefox most of the time but am getting more and more fond of chrome.
    The nice thing about Rockmelt is that it is there in your browser, unlike say tweetdeck or hootsuite. They are ok if you use more than 1 monitor.
    Worth checking out, thanks for the heads up.

  3. Yeah , I love how everything is integrated right into the browser. I heard TweetDeck is a massive resource hog.

    Hey Edwin!

    Looks interesting. Just waiting on an invite so I can take it for a spin around the block. Not sure if it will do much to improve my productivity though… probably have the reverse affect. :-)

    Kind regards,
    Steve

  5. For most people, their free version has everything you need. The pro version lets you have more social networks (free gives you 5), and I think you can also have multiple people use your hootsuite a/c in the pro version (a VA tweeting for you for example). There's probably a few other things the pro version has too, but nothing that I've ever missed. :-)

  6. I guess HootSuite might be a good alternative but I heard that they now you have to go PRO to use any good features.

  7. Sounds like a convenient way to keep track of social media. Though at times having different applications in your PC can make things more confusing.

  8. I understand your point about it being confusing but RockMelt integrates all of them at once, its not like you have to download seperate stuff for the Twitter and/or Facebook things to work.

    Thanks for commenting Tini :)

  10. Oh that sucks. Maybe they will make a Linux version in the future.

    I typically use Firefox, so I guess I'll inform my younger brother about it as he usually browses on Chrome. Thanks for sharing us your very detailed review about RockMelt.

    Hi Edwin,
    Thanks for sharing with us about Rockmelt, its a very good review. I use only Firefox and though I’ve tried Chrome as well I’m habituated using firefox but rockfelt has me interested. If we can, share, search and connect faster and more easily this is definitely something to watch out for!
