The internet world is changing how members of society communicate with one another. Sure, the killer application for computer users is email, but that’s become so last century.
Today there’s Twitter and Facebook and Flickr, all representative of the social networker’s lifestyle. It’s only fair that using a 20th century browser like Safari or Firefox would be considered passé. What do social networkers use to browse the web? Mac or PC, Flock is the only browser that makes it easy for 21st century socialites to keep in touch.
Flock Is Touchy Feely
Flock is a 21st century browser experience. Underneath, Flock is Firefox, so it’s fast and stable.
On the inside, Flock is loaded with social skills. From within Flock you can update your Twitter account, without even visiting Twitter’s site.
Flock does Blogger, Yahoo! Mail, Flickr and Picasa, AOL Mail, Gmail, Facebook, MySpace and pretty much every notable social touch point in between.
You can connect automatically to 20 different online services to upload photos, post on walls, blog, and connect with friends and family and never worry about opening up twenty eleven different utilities. They’re all integrated within Flock.
Firefox Extension Guts Inside
The web has become all social and lets us connect with friends and family 24/7. Inside Flock is Mozilla’s Firefox, so it runs on Mac and Windows PCs.
Flock also takes advantage of Firefox’s extension architecture, so most of those gazillions of cool tools, utilities, and add-ons available for Firefox also run in Flock.
Even better, add-ons can be installed in Flock without ever leaving Flock; just like it works in Firefox.
Flock Speaks Your Language
Think of what is really happening with Flock. Instead of using four or five different utilities on your Mac to connect to your favorite social networks, Flock builds in the connectivity.
Wait! There’s more! Flock speaks a bunch of different languages besides Mac and Windows and Linux; everything from four different versions of English and two versions of Chinese to French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, three versions of Spanish, and a bunch of others that are like Greek to me (12 languages in all).
Flock has a People Sidebar that helps you connect to friends online. There’s a built-in blog editor. And webmail. And RSS. A special Web Clipboard to store text or images you find online.
Since photos are such a big part of our internet lives, Flock responds with a Media Bar and a Photo Uploader so you can upload movies to YouTube and Photos to Flickr or Picasa.
The advantage to using Flock over Safari or Firefox is the social edge. If you’re wired and connected to everyone online, you’ll appreciate being able to contact everyone from a single location. Flock will log you in automatically.
You can even chat online via Facebook, right from within Flock. Twitter? It’s built in.
There’s a single problem with Flock becoming a significant advantage for Mac and Windows users. Sure, all that social connectivity is there. Flock is free. It’s fast. Pages look good.
Where’s the iPhone version? See the problem? Browsing the web on the iPhone, whether you’re a Windows user or Mac user, is decidedly a Safari experience. Connecting to all those social outlets on the iPhone is a problem since a dozen or so apps are required, where Flock does it all in one place.
Free Flock for the iPhone. Otherwise, if you’re tethered to your Mac or PC, and you’re a social animal, Flock is a great place to live.
