Social networking has taken a huge leap in recent past. Without any doubt, Social networking has brought people closer and connected everyone from everywhere. Nowadays every person uses one social networking app / website or another. It is not that simple anymore. People do not use social networking websites just for connecting to other people. They use it for different purposes such as for advertising their businesses. People using these social networking websites for different purposes are in a hassle to manage these different websites. Because all of these sites serve a different purpose. So many people might wonder if they could manage all these websites from one place.
As the smartphone age arrived another use of social networking came forward, which is instant messaging service. These apps on smartphones made it very easy to connect and contact any of your friends and family whether home or abroad. Such as WhatsApp for the close friends who know your mobile number, Facebook messenger for those friends who do not know your mobile number but can contact you. Then there is Hangouts by Google and Skype by Microsoft. The list of these apps goes on and on, making it a never ending because of new apps being developed every day. These apps are not only available on your smartphone; they are also present on your PC.
So managing so many apps with so many complexities is not very easy job.
The managing problem persists with instant messaging apps too. Because all of them are important for almost every person. The real problem comes in when you use these apps on your desktops. Not only apps but other websites and softwares.
