Flock

Flickr PhotoAfter reading the news about Flock on CNET News, I installed the social browser based on Firefox. Because I wanted to check out all its features, I signed up for a del.icio.us account since I already had all other web accounts needed to take fully advantage of Flock. It’s really nice to see how fast the bookmarks are synced with del.icio.us, it’s almost instantaneous. I’d love to see the .mac sync feature work that fast.

The blogging feature are beeing tested right now as I am typing this message with Flock. The blog API discovery works seamlessly, even WordPress blogs are recognised in spite of the missing RSD file link. I am wondering what kind of heuristic is used to determine the API link.

    I tried it too, looks really promising. However, while importing it did not find my firefox favorites.

    flickr integration is awesome. But is there a way to access private pictures

    I did not care about Firefox favorites since I use Safari 🙂 Regarding flickr, it is pointless to have private access, since a blog is not private and wouldn’t diplay private images.

    so the question is: will flock replace safari on your mac soon? 😉

    On social software and photos I have an idea.
    Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on earth can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if this could be demonstrated through five photos: from ‘a nobody’ in 5 pictures to a well known celebrity.
