We have a vision for the future of Overblog, the leading european blogging platform:
The blog of the future must reflect all your public social interactions, it will be directly connected to your social networks.
Today we are announcing the acquisition of Timekiwi, a californian startup who will help us speed up the development of our new Overblog Kiwi version.
Timekiwi, your Public Timeline!
Timekiwi developpers have created a public timeline, which provides a unified view of all your social network activities (although you can still choose what you want to show or hide).
Here is mine (mostly in french). You will see my blog posts, my tweets (enriched), my facebook statuses and all what I am sharing publicly. Content is deduplicated. You can choose the vertical or the horizontal view (Rotate), in order to fit with your particular taste or your screen size.
You can also connect your Flickr, Instagram, Foursquare, Tumblr and Overblog accounts (Connect).
We are already working on some improvements, Timekiwi will connect with even more social networks in the near future, you will be able to show on your social hub all your posts, tweets, pictures, videos, check-in,...
Later on, we will offer Timekiwi as an integrated feature on Overblog. Your feed-back is more than welcome to help us build the best blogging tool ever. Let's reinvent blogs together!
