5 Must-Try Social & Email Desktop Clients!

What is a social email desktop client? It is simply a desktop based software that allows you to integrate your social network and email interventions without stopping you from doing the things you love to do online.

Like myself working from home and being on the computer for around 10 hours a day, using a social desktop client comes of great use; I can be writing my blogs, updating my website, browsing the web and doing all the things I love online whilst socialising and emailing through Facebook, Twitter, Gmail and more.

So what’s the best desktop client to use? I’ve included 5 of what I personally believe to be amongst the best around.


Disgby destop client offers instant messaging, email and social networking in one portal. You can also customise skins and give the application a personal look. One of my favourite features is the website or blog widget allowing you to chat to your friends straight the Digsby widget.


If you remember a while back we reviewed the Inbox2 desktop client which you can check out here.


HootSuite user Interface

Hootsuite is an amazing social media dashboard with some great features such as RSS feeds, stats history and Google Analytics integration. There are two packages available, the free package which includes 5 social network account and 2 RSS feeds and a 30-day stats history. The pro package gives you unlimited everything as well as an affiliate programme and more.


Thwirl is a uniqe social desktop client software that is based on the Adobe Air platform. Features include message notification, image posting, search for tweets and much, much more to mention. You can connect your favourite accounts such as Twitter and FriendFeed.


Zimbra desktop 2.0 is the latest version available from Zimbra with extensive features which includes storing and syncing your email, calendar, contacts, files and documents, integration of your social accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, and Digg into the user interface, plus much more.
