Flock: a deserving Webby winner, and a ground-breaking browser

Share |
Get Flock

Well, if ChangeEverything.ca was going to lose in the Webby race, it couldn't have been to a more worthy contender than Flock.

If you're active in social media, you owe it to yourself to check Flock out. It's an open-source web browser (peer into its heart, and you'll find the Firefox codebase)... but calling it a browser seems completely inadequate.

Flock - My World screen

Consider it your social media nerve centre:

  • Flock lets you keep tabs on what your social network friends are up to - from status lines to the media they're creating.
  • It makes sharing photos and videos dramatically easier, whether you're uploading files or blogging a photo from your Flickr account.
  • It has a built-in feed reader, it's integrated with social bookmarking services, it has a handy blog post editor...
  • ...and it knits all of this together to turn you into a Web 2.0 powerhouse.

One great little wrinkle: they've recently released a green edition, prepopulated with lots of sustainability info.

If you haven't taken Flock for a spin already - or if you tried out the early betas and gave up - go download it and try it out. It's a whole new way of using the social web.
