Ping.fm is a service that makes updating your social networks, like Twitter and Pownce, real easy. The service allows you to post blog entries, micro-blogging entries, or even status updates to over 30 social networking sites all from one dashboard. The thing I like about this service is it allows for "triggers". So if you just wanted to send a status update to MySpace, Facebook, and Friendster you can set up a custom trigger to control where you post your message. It is a very simple process, which I like. The service also provides the ability to post you message via email with a custom email address. The only thing this service is lacking is the ability to pull in a RSS feed and syndicate it across all of the social networking sites. I did find that someone is working on this, but the issue has been outstanding for over six months.
