Take control of your life with this easy-breezy social media tool. It’ll work wonders for your professional life—and maybe your personal one, too.

Feeling overwhelmed by all the information out there—like there’s simply not enough time to consume it and understand it?

Of course you are. We all are. It’s a symptom of the social media age.

That’s why, as professional communicators, we look for tools and techniques that save time and money when it comes to communicating through social media. And that’s why this week’s column is about Ping.fm, which was acquired by Seesmic last January.
