Flock 2.5 Social Network Browser — I Like It But I Don’t Think My Boss Will

20May09

Thanks to a tip on Mashable, I downloaded Flock 2.5.  To be honest, I had never heard of Flock —  now I’m like, where have I been?   This browser gives easy access to your social media, but now I’m not sure if it’s going to cause me to spend more time playing when I should be working.

I like the sidebar which gives you quick access to updates on Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace.  The other cool thing is the Facebook chat link that stays open even if you aren’t on the Facebook page.  You can easily drag videos and pictures to share in a chat.  Also worth mentioning is the “blog this” feature  — just right mouse click on media you want to blog about and a blog editor opens up for you to add your post and quickly publish to your blog.

Yeah.. Flock has me hooked.

If you want to see Flock 2.5 in action, check out the screencast below (best viewed in HD in full screen):

P.S.  Please ignore my dog scratching in the background toward the end.  My voice wasn’t up to redoing the narration.
