The old question: How can you be in two places at once? Makes you think of Schrodinger’s Cat — it’s alive and dead at the same time? Hmmm. (See Wikipedia’s discussion.) Or the Firesign Theatre’s album, How Can You Be In Two Places At Once When You’re Not Anywhere At All?
Where ever you may or may not be, you’re on Facebook, and Twitter, and Linked-in, and Plaxo, and who knows how many other social networking and social bookmarking sites. All or most of them have the micro-blogging function which asks you to answer the question, “What are you doing?” in 140 characters or less.
If you happen to be updating your blog, you might want to be telling your friends and followers on Twitter, Facebook, Linked-in, Plaxo, etc., that you have a new blog post, like, “My New, Slimming Burrito” or “Get Paid Interest to Carry a Balance On Your Credit Card,” or whatever.
Rather than type in your 140-character-post two, three, seven, twelve, or more times to tell each of your social networking sites, type it once into this cool little aggregating tool, Hello Text, at http://hellotxt.com, to be in 40 or more places at once.
Just join once (it’s free), link it to some or all of your social networking sites, and then enter your update at HelloTxt, and it will automatically post your one update to 40 or more different sites.
