MoDazzle.com – Bring Your Social Networks on the Road
As everything seems to be growing legs and getting mobile to please our increasingly busy on the run lifestyles, we now have Modazzle which offers one way to mobilize our social networks. Specifically, the app works with Facebook, Salesforce, Ryze, and Linked in.
It doesn’t end there however. Want to know if tomorrow will be a sunny day or where the nearest Starbuck’s is? MoDazzle’s got the information you need with access to Yelp for restaurant reviews, Google Maps, ZoomInfo and Starbucks itself. Access to your networks and to daily info is accessed via SMS shortcodes and email addreses. You can look up contacts on your social networks by emailing the search request to Modazzle or sending an SMS. Modazzle also gives you range to use Facebook pokes, to check friends’ online statuses, and you can post/or read your wall. Each task for each network has its own designated short code and email address, so it may take some time to get into the groove of things. However, it’s pretty useful for those who don’t have mobile browsing options on their phone.

Some Questions About MoDazzle.com
Modazzle may prove to be clunky and bothersome. Having to memorize all the email addresses and SMS codes may make some want to abandon ship before they start. Also with many social sites having fairly robust mobile options, it may be easier to access each site individually. MoDazzle seems ultimately lacking innovation, rather than making things easier, it complicates them.
