HootSuite Buys Seesmic

HootSuite on Thursday announced the acquisition of Seesmic, a service that breaks social media threads up into manageable groups for easy social media management.

The two companies combined will mean a bigger social reach for customers. While Seesmic has worked to allow for Tumblr posting, HootSuite recently gained Google+ page access. Combined the company now has access to two of the fastest growing social platforms in the world.

IntenseDebate Add Plugin Support

This is actually pretty cool, and could be the one killer feature that would make me swap to IntenseDebate. As you probably know, IntenseDebate is a hosted comment manager for your site, just like Disqus.

And now they’ve added plugin support, with a bunch of them available already. Like instant YouTube embedding and Seesmic video commenting support. Check out the launch post, the ReadWriteWeb coverage, Techmeme coverage, and the intro video below:
