I’ve been a proponent of TweetDeck to track people I’m following on Twitter. That all changed today. Zac and friends from “team awesome” introduced me to PeopleBrowsr. PeopleBrowsr is TweetDeck on steroids. (Suggesting Major League Baseball players probably like it as well.)
Here are some of the advantages of using PeopleBrowsr over TweetDeck:
- It’s a browser-based solution, so you can set up groups on one computer and follow the same groups on any other computer connected to the Web.
- You can track people you’re following on other social networks including Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, etc.
- You can create public or private groups and then tag people to add them to those groups.
- It incorporates profile data like follower/following stats and location into each update.
- It streamlines the process of replies, direct messages and retweets from each update.
I’m loving it. It was easy to set up my new groups using the group manager. Much easier than TweetDeck. I think I’m hooked on PeopleBrowsr.
Have you tried it out? What’s your reaction? Any features you’re hoping will be added to the beta version?
