Saying Good-bye to Brizzly

It’s been quite a while since I’ve tried to use Brizzly, but I did enjoy the features they offered. For a long time, it was one of the few Web-based interfaces I could use to manage my social media accounts. The other day, when I was temporarily using a computer that didn’t have Chrome installed (so I couldn’t use ChromeDeck), I tried visiting Brizzly only to find that they were shuttering the service.

Today, the official notice went out to Brizzly users. Following is the message that was sent out:

Brizzly Gets Some Updates

It’s been a while since I’ve logged into Brizzly, having been using recently to manage my personal Twitter account. Today, though, I needed to monitor both of my Twitter accounts for part of the day, so I decided to pop in to Brizzly to do so.

I was a bit surprised when I logged in. The interface has an entirely new look. Everything is still basically in the same place as it was before, but the color scheme is drastically different than it was the last time I visited Brizzly. In fact, there are now four themes available within Brizzly, allowing you to sort of personalize your experience.

It seems that this change, among others, was made a little over a week ago.

Brizzly Gets Facebook Integration

Brizzly adds FacebookBrizzly, a really nice Web-based Twitter client, integrated Facebook into its interface today. Now, in addition to being able to manage multiple Twitter accounts (I currently have three), you can add your Facebook account to the application.

Within Brizzly, you can watch your news feed and your wall. What’s really nice, though, is that Brizzly also allows you to keep track of your recent activity on Facebook. I don’t know about you, but a lot of times, when I comment on someone’s wall post or status update on Facebook, by the time they see it and reply, it’s disappeared from my news feed so I have trouble finding it again. With Brizzly’s new interface, finding that conversation is just a click away.

If you haven’t tried Brizzly yet, I do have a handful of invitations available for those that are interested. Just leave a comment here and I’ll send the invitation to the e-mail address you use with your comment.
