Pip.io is a social network that acts as a unifier, bringing all of a person’s social networking accounts under one digital roof. Although the application had a very different look when it launched in February of this year, Pip.io has undergone a number of updates and changes since that time that have truly taken it to the next level. More than just a unifier or an information consolidator, Pip.io version 2.0 actually gives users a way to instant message and video chat with each other from within the new system.
If you’re tired of logging in and out of separate Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, Google Buzz, and YouTube accounts, then Pip.io version 2 is made for you – even if signing up for yet another social networking account sounds like a step in the wrong direction. As soon as you log in to your Pip.io account, you’ll be prompted to input account detail and information for all your other social networking sites. Once you’re linked up, you’ll be able to start updating each of your social networking accounts from within the Pip.io app. Decide whether new posts should be public or private, and receive notices on Pip.io when new updates have been made on your other networks.
Not only does Pip.io version 2.0 have a completely new layout, but it also bumps relevant conversations to the top of your feed – rather than organizing feeds purely in chronological order. The latest version also offers a more intuitive layout, a new Google Buzz app, video posting capabilities, and even greater privacy controls. For users who tried Pip.io back in its infancy, the version 2.0 updates make it seem like an entirely new app.
