Unify your Social Sites with Meevr.Com

One of the most annoying aspects of the fractured social platforms many of us make use of around the web on a daily basis, is that they are spread out all over the place. hopes to remove the frustration of trying to manage a large number of web 2.0 accounts, by providing a social aggregator under which all accounts can be easily maintained.

In their own words, Meevr describes themselves as “a social networking aggregator allowing you to pull your favorite social profiles into one place. Don’t link to multiple social sites, link to Meevr.”.

The trouble is that all Meevr really does is allow you to attach various social profiles from a rather limited number of web 2.0 properties (Digg, Delicious, Facebook, Flickr, Vimeo and YouTube presently), to your Meevr homepage. This is so that when you need to give out your contact information, rather than giving out an email address for further details or saying search for me on Facebook, you would supposedly give someone your easy to remember Meevr  web address instead.

The user profiles do an admirable job of clearly displaying buttons that represent the chosen members linked social sites. They even give room for a unique website’s url and provide a means for people to leave comments on the individuals Meevr profile page.

However I have to wonder, was it really necessary to build a website to act as some kind of first point of call when looking for someone’s various social accounts on the internet? Surely if a person wanted that kind of web presence they would already have it, in the form of a personalized website or blog that contained the same information.

Meevr doesn’t pull up information from the various accounts that members attach to their profiles. So for example you don’t see recent status updates, or video uploads on a Meevr profile. It in no way reacts to anything a user might do on one of the linked social platforms, nor does it allow for any kind of remote access to those accounts.

Personally I fail to see the attraction in I would understand if it pulled information in from my other accounts, or if it let me have control over all my accounts from a centralized location. That would be a social aggregator worth having in my opinion. As things stand though, I think this is definitely one of the worst ideas I’ve seen in a very long time.
