Flock Web Browser – A Social Marketer’s Dream?

January 16th, 2009
7 Comments


I am testing out the Flock Web Browser this morning and my initial impression is that it could be an amazing tool for social media marketers.  It’s essentially Firefox with a large number of social media plugins built into the browser.  Thus far I have updated my Twitter status, told my Facebook friends what I am doing and now I have published a blog post.  I am going to try and use Flock over the next week and see how it compares to FF.

    Andrew,
    Thanks for the informati0n.
    Why you didn’t detail why the flock browser is good for social marketer?
    If you can I’ll appreciate it.

    Flock is great, and I still occasionally use it. However, strangely I find myself skipping over it in deference to Chrome. It seems clear the Flock folks have worked diligently to stuff it full of social integration, and that’s nice and very useful. In the end, the screen real estate is too precious to me (no matter the size of the screen).

    Flock is a cool browser, and I occasionally use it. Having said that, firefox with its myriad of plugins has come a long way and continues to be my favourite.

    Hi Andrew,
    Any major snafus yet? I’m curious as to whether you were testing this as a “work” browser or as a personal browser. I user three different browsers already because no one has seen fit to build a browser that allows “profiles” and I have settings that need to be kept separate, as I’m sure many internet consultants might have when they work for clients… what annoys me about Firefox and it’s seven thousand plug-ins are that half my screen is stuffed with “toolbars” and Digg’s is the only one I can hide on the fly. The others require disabling in the preferences, which is a real pain. So with respect to Tom’s comment about “real estate” I actually regain a lot by having so many social media tools built in.

    I just wondering what all of this inter-connectivity will do to my computer over 16 hours…
