Something that Facebook, Twitter and Google have all missed

Of late, I have realized that I the time I spend on G+ or FaceBook or Twitter’s site has gone down drastically. However, my activity on these networks has substantially increased.

I have done this by using FlipBoard where I am able to not only stream all my social network in one place but am also able to cross share across the different mediums seamlessly.

Though, twitter and Google+ allow you to share content via email apart from sharing within their platforms, that is not enough.

As a user, I want to be able to share my content seamlessly across platform. I spoke to a few of my other friends who are active on the social media have also indicated similar need.

By not enabling cross-platform sharing capabilities, the platforms are only inhibiting the time that people like me on their sites.

In this way, Youtube has done really well by enabling cross-platform sharing across the different platforms. I guess, this is also one reason why the average time spent on YouTube is on the increase and that on FaceBook, Twitter or G+ on the decline..

Hope that they realize this strong need and enable this soon. Till then the aggregators like FlipBoard will rule ;-

  1. Mukesh, I agree. I had not realized what would bring me back into high activity mode with Facebook, Twitter and Google+ but your idea makes great sense. I will check out FlipBoard and will also look for other ways to channel these three offerings into one manageable place for me.

  2. Thanks Darcie for sharing your thoughts. Hope you like FlipBoard as much as I do. And hope that FB, G+ and twitter actually do something about this.

    Have a great weekend!

    Take care!
    Regards
    Mukesh
