This is what EventBox is helping me with. With EventBox, I only need one application for everthing. I have added Twitter and Facebook, and my RSS subscriptions, and I feel like I have full control of everything at the moment.
If you are interested, you can add other features to EventBox as well; Flickr, Pownce, Reddit and Digg. And I bet that there will be a lot of other new features really soon.
It was really easy to install it, I am not sure, but it took me probably no more than three minutes to install and add Facebook, Twitter and a few rss subscriptions to EventBox.
Instead of using 6 different application, you can use EventBox and get everything done with just one application.
There are only two problem so far. EventBox is only for Mac (not really a problem for me, because I mostly use my iMac anyway). And EventBox is not exactly free. You can download a free 30-day trial (I think it’s a 30-day trail) from their website, but if you still want to use it after this period, you’d have to pay $15 (it will soon be $20).
