    Put simply, Ping.fm is a status update tool that sends your updates to a handful of your favorite microblogging services. So far, Ping.fm supports Twitter, Facebook, Jaiku, Tumblr and Pownce. The concept is one that will catch on like wildfire in the coming months, and the options for submitting an update come in the form of email, IM, its Google gadget, and a desktop application.

    Though Ping.fm is still a simple service that's easy to use, I think a more fluid registration process for assigning various services (and even supporting multiple accounts for a given service) could make the setup process even easier. Be forewarned, you'll need to add the Ping.fm Facebook application in order to send updates to Facebook via Ping.fm.

    Making an update on Ping.fm pushes the update to a number of different social websites at once. This allows individuals using multiple social networks to update their status only once, without having to update it in all their social mediums individually. Ping.fm groups services into three categories - status updates, blogs, and micro-blogs - and updates can be sent to each group separately.

    A user can configure his or her Ping.fm account to aggregate content to the following services:

    Code:
    Bebo
    Blogger
    Brightkite
    Custom URL
    Delicious
    Facebook
    FriendFeed
    Friendster	
    hi5
    Identi.ca
    Jaiku
    Kwippy
    Koornk
    LinkedIn
    LiveJournal
    Mashable	
    MySpace
    Plaxo
    Plurk
    Pownce
    Rejaw
    Tumblr
    Twitter
    WordPress.com	
    Xanga
    Yahoo 360
    Diigo

    For what it's worth, someone has written a PHP wrapper class for ping.fm. It's available from the phpclasses site:

    why use more plugins? ping.fm has a feature where it will track a RSS feed and ping out any new content.

    less stress on your server.

    Cheers for the heads up. Will definitely try this out. But plurk is nofollow right?
