Seesmic Desktop and Ning Network Extensions

We’re happy to announce that Ning Networks are now supported in the all-new Seesmic Desktop 2 product. If you’re not familiar with Seesmic Desktop, it’s an application that allows you to follow activity across multiple social networking services and post status updates from one easy-to-use location. In addition to keeping your finger on the pulse of your Twitter, Facebook and Google Buzz accounts, you and your members will now be able to monitor activity on one or more of your Ning Networks. Even better, your members can post status updates to your Ning Networks at the same time they post to other services. This is a great way to increase your member engagement.
