December 5, 2010 – Comprehensive Social Networking is a social network that acts as a unifier, bringing all of a person’s social networking accounts under one digital roof. Although the application had a very different look when it launched in February of this year, has undergone a number of updates and changes since that time that have truly taken it to the next level. More than just a unifier or an information consolidator, version 2.0 actually gives users a way to instant message and video chat with each other from within the new system.

If you’re tired of logging in and out of separate Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, Google Buzz, and YouTube accounts, then version 2 is made for you – even if signing up for yet another social networking account sounds like a step in the wrong direction. As soon as you log in to your account, you’ll be prompted to input account detail and information for all your other social networking sites. Once you’re linked up, you’ll be able to start updating each of your social networking accounts from within the app. Decide whether new posts should be public or private, and receive notices on when new updates have been made on your other networks.

Not only does version 2.0 have a completely new layout, but it also bumps relevant conversations to the top of your feed – rather than organizing feeds purely in chronological order. The latest version also offers a more intuitive layout, a new Google Buzz app, video posting capabilities, and even greater privacy controls. For users who tried back in its infancy, the version 2.0 updates make it seem like an entirely new app.

Practical Uses:

  • Consolidate your social networking accounts
  • Communicate with friends in a private manner
  • Video chat with your sister who lives far away
  • Save time by posting replies on multiple accounts at once

Insider Tips:

  • Check your RSS feeds from within
  • Become friends with other users on, or use the app solely as a way to consolidate other accounts
  • Users with a video icon are available to chat
  • Retweet a Twitter message without having to visit the Twitter site

What we liked:

  • Receive alerts for all items that were added while you were logged off the site
  • Users can save time by viewing all their networking accounts in one place
  • New layout is more streamlined that previous versions
  • Multiple privacy settings make it easy to limit access to certain notes
  • Users don’t have to download anything to use’s video chat feature

What we didn’t like:

  • With all the new updates and additional features, can sometimes feel overwhelming
