Ping.fm is now open beta to the public


The fun and extremely useful service is now open to public beta.
As some of you may know, I am a member of 67 social networking services, that means 67 online profiles that I have to maintain regularly, Do you you how hard it is do do so? You probably do.
That was until I discovered the best tool of 2008 in my opinion, www.ping.fm and until September 2nd, it was an invite only beta service.
Well now it’s open to the public, still in beta, but open to all.
What is Ping.fm?
Let’s say you have multiple online profiles, like me, you might want to update all of them almost everyday.
Before Ping, I would manually go on my twitter, facebook, plurk, pownce, linkedin, tumbler, identica, brightkite, freindfeed, jaiku, plaxo, bebo, hi5, kwippy, xanga and rejaw to update my status, sometimes twice a day for each one.
After I got my special beta invie code and signed up with Ping.fm, set it up, I can update all the above and more in one shot, whether I am updating from web, phone, email or IM, it’s all in one shot, life became way easier 🙂
Now here is the best part: (Warning! geeks content follow)
Ping was built with open API calls, meaning if you hire a nerd like myself (And you can!) to set it up with your blog or RSS feed, guess what? You know it. More organic exposure. I even setup some of my affiliate feeds to go there immediatly and I can’t tell you how much I love getting those extra commision checks in the mail.
Ping.fm is more than just status update, you can even setup your wordpress blog so you can blog through Ping.
I advice everyone to get an account (Now that it’s open to all) and enjoy everything Ping offers.

Update: I have some Brightkite invites, comment on this article and I will email you an invite. (Hurry I only have 10 invites and I will send it to the first 10 commenters only).

  1. I wondered what was taking Ping.fm so long to get back to me…they were on the verge of an open beta 🙂

    I’d appreciate one of those BrightKite invites. Thanks!

  9. Awesome site and good article. The combination of you and Yaro should get my blog off to a good start.

    Oh, and if by chance you still have an invite left, I will gladly take that!!

  11. Hey Buddy,

    Nice to see you are still kicking it. The Ping article was very informative and I am so glad I read it. What a God send. Now no more going to all those social websites updating. Thanks for making my life a bit easier to bear with all the information we geeks deal with on a daily basis.

    Thanks
    Brightkite looks interesting would live to join you if invites are left and I am not too late.
