Yoono: The Social Media Plugin For Firefox

If you are a frequent user of Facebook, Twitter, AIM, Flickr, FriendFeed, Youtube and wish there is a centralized place to control everything, now you have it – Yoono.

Yoono is a extension for the Firefox browser. For those who are familiar to Flock, you might find this to be too similar. However, Yoono is only 2MB in size and works right in your Firefox browser, so there is no need for you to install the new 15MB Flock browser.

Once you installed the extension, you will see a slick Yoono interface on the sidebar. On the corner lies all the widgets where you can add to your Yoono interface.

The widgets are categorized into Videos, Photos, Friends, Music, Web notes and Discovery. The Videos and Photos widgets allow you to view videos from Youtube, Metacafe and photos from Flickr. Music widget enables you to listen to online radio while Friends widget allows you to connect to the various social media sites and instant messaging networks (Facebook, Twitter, MSN, gadu-gadu, google talk, AIM etc).

People who love Stumbleupon will also find the Discovery widget useful as it analyzes the page you have visited and present the sites that are of your interest.

Generally, I have been pretty impressed by Yoono as it has successfully and creatively integrated all the various social media networks together. It is definitely not flawless, but it has really proved to be an addictive and useful extension for power social media users.
