Status.net has just recently launched a BETA release of their micro blogging software. This platform provides Twitter like micro blog functionality. Rather having to host your micro blog on Twitter, you can download the software and run it on your own servers. Now comes word that Status.net will also offer the platform as a hosted solution.
One of the really interesting features of the platform is the Ostatus functionality. Ostatus allows you to follow people on other social networks, say Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin. You can also push information from your Status.net environment to these locations.
Having one interface to manage your social media interactions certainly sounds attractive. However, it is important to consider that what someone expects on these different social media sites will vary.
Regardless, it's an interesting product that could streamline how people use and manage their social media interactions.
