Fuser – Where Inboxes Meet

ss-fuser is one of those sites that makes you think: “why didn’t I think of that?” Instead of having to login to several separate social networking accounts (Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) Fuser users can just get all of their inbox mail at one source. Sure, this isn’t entirely necessary if you’ve only got a Myspace and Facebook account and nothing else, but if you’ve got several different social networking accounts, spread across several different niches (personal, business, music, etc.) then Fuser is a great way to manage your activity.

Fuser inspires people to open up and manage more social networking sites because they can do it all at one source, rather than having to visit and login to a number of different sites a day.

The site also allows for access to a number of different e-mail accounts at once, so if you have a business account, personal account, site registration account, or something else, Fuser gives you the ability to send and receive email directly from the website.

Practical Uses:

  • You’re in a rock band that has band accounts at fifty different music-based social networking sites. It’s a pain to login to all of these separately
  • Prevent overlooking messages by consolidating everything into one view
  • Access all of your personal and business mail conveniently and quickly while on vacation

Insider Tips:

  • Organize messages by logo. As an example, you might get most of your communication through Myspace, or something else, so this helps with organization
  • Use tabbed browsing to hop around between different networking accounts
  • Turn off some accounts if necessary. This will ensure that you don’t have to deal with unwanted messages from sites where you don’t conduct a lot of important business

What we liked:

  • Fuser is fast and free
  • User-friendly interface – couldn’t be easier to use.
  • Good response time on customer support. Still some bugs, as mentioned below, but the Fuser staff is on top of making improvements.
  • Great How-to videos on the site

What we didn’t like:

  • No instant messaging support. Though it does support Twitter, it doesn’t support instant messaging like AIM or Google Talk
  • There’s no way to access contact lists, such as in Gmail, so you will still have to login to your Gmail account to access certain features
  • Some bugginess, such as getting error messages when trying to add certain accounts
