Social Media Aggregator

What was that thing in the 90s that combined all of the instant messaging services you used into one console?

Do they have something like that, currently, to aggregate updates and/or content from Instagram, Tumblr, etc.?

Cloze.com claims to do this, and has a free version of the app. Can't say whether it's any good or not...

That was the icq logo. But I think icq just implemented the AOL Instant Messaging protocol, and Pidgin implemented a lot of other chat protocols including AIM.

I still have ICQ on my computer. I log in once every few years and see if any old gaming peeps from back in the day are still using it.

The last time I did this was about 4 months ago. I saw a familiar name showing logged in green flower - a kid who was in my guild around 2000/2001 - hadn't spoken to him since that time. I messaged him Hi, asked if him he remembered the guild and he did. We shot the breeze for a few messages . He's in his 30s now *laughs* I hadn't realised how young he was back then.

Kick ass PvPer that kid - but couldn't follow a battlefield order to save his or anybody else's life.
