Threadsy – Single Site. Many Services.

Threadsy is an application that makes it easy to integrate all of the messages from your email accounts and social media sites into one basic feed. Rather than clicking around the Internet aimlessly trying to read all of your most recent updates and keep track of incoming emails, Threadsy brings these updates to you in a centralized location. Not only can you see incoming emails and messages from multiple accounts on your Threadsy dashboard, but you can reply to messages without leaving the site, as well.

Sign in to your Google account to get started with Threadsy, then add your usernames and passwords for any accounts you’d like to add to your Threadsy feed. The site currently supports Gmail, Yahoo, Windows Live/MSN, and AOL email accounts, plus Facebook, Twitter, IMAP, and MobileMe. In a matter of seconds, your Threadsy feed will be created and you can start browsing through your feed of incoming emails, tweets, and messages from friends. On the right hand side of the page, you can keep track of status updates on Twitter and Facebook, and reply directly without leaving the Threadsy site.

Users can chat with friends through the site’s Meebo chat bar, or use a filter to temporarily view only those messages coming from a specific account. Although Threadsy has a number of features, the site’s intuitive layout and design makes it easy to use without needing a lot of explanation. By allowing users to view and respond to messages from all of their email accounts and social networking sites in one place, Threadsy is saving people time and making it easier to stay connected. Because of this, we can definitely say that Threadsy is a site worth checking out.

Practical Uses:

  • View email from multiple accounts on one screen
  • Conduct all your online communication in one, centralized place
  • Respond to messages immediately as they come in
