MySocials: A Client for Social Network Services

Background and Motivation: 

 

Nowadays social networks are the most popular and widespread services. There are several world leaders and some strong regional services in this area. Also there are universal and special social networks. For example, Facebook and VKontakte are the universal social networks, but Flickr and Picasa Web Albums specialize in images and videos. An active user of the Internet usually has several accounts on different social services. Sometimes it is hard to be updated about all the changes that happen every day. It could cause some practical inconveniences and addition waste of time for users. Therefore, there is a need of special application which could combine working with different services into working with one client.
