Organize your online life

Keeping up with email and social networking messages can be hard work for young people leaving their digital footprints all over the web. Catering to the need for a simplified online presence, a new website called Fuser launched this week. Fuser allows users to organize emails from multiple accounts (including Yahoo, Gmail, Outlook, AOL, Hotmail, and POP), as well as messages from MySpace and Facebook, into one all-encompassing secure inbox, thus eliminating the need to bounce back and forth between multiple addresses and sites. Fuser users respond to emails as they would with a typical webmail application. Facebook members can even view Facebook wall posts and respond either by responding on the friend’s wall or by sending a message to the friend.

Fuser also offers users a “map” of their network by ranking friends according to how many times they have sent messages/posted on their wall; these rankings can even be viewed according to specific time periods. As young people value documentation such as this, as well as the site’s primary aggregation service, the site may find an audience.

And by the way: MySpace just launched a free, ad-supported mobile service for its users. The service works on all U.S. carriers, and allows users to send/receive messages and friend requests, comment on profiles and photos, post bulletins, update blogs, search for friends, and change their “mood” status.
