Flock – giving the new social web browser a go

I’m trying out the new social web browser, Flock. I noticed a few tweets on Twitter from people saying that they have moved over so I thought I’d give it a go. I’m writing this post from within the browser which is one of the features they offer. It will be very interesting to see if it works! Here is some of what they say in their release notes;

Flock 1.1 delivers a more personal experience of the web, where its users are in control and more connected to what’s important to them. By automatically managing updates and media from popular social services such as Facebook, Flickr, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, YouTube, and Twitter, Flock makes sharing with friends and services drag-and-drop easy.
A ‘my world page’ is available that can contain your Favourite Feeds, Friend Activity, Favourite Media and Favourite Sites. Pages are updating but I’m yet to figure out if this is happening because I’m moving between pages within the browser – from my observations it doesn’t appear that updates from Twitter are coming through automatically. One of the good things about the favourite feeds page is that you can see a linked list of comments that have appeared on your blog. It seems like a good way to keep everything you are linking to in one place. I’d be interested in hearing what others think. Here goes – about to press the ‘Publish’ button – let’s see if it works!
