Cliqset Adds More Facebook, Digg, Social Search | 40Tech

When I last wrote about Cliqset, users were able to fully integrate a Twitter and Google Buzz account, but services like Facebook were one-way only. You could share something from your various connected streams to Facebook, as well as to a multitude of other services, but you couldn’t pull content from Facebook and interact with it. Now you can.

As of yesterday, Cliqset’s new Facebook integration went live and is as close as it gets to all inclusive: it pulls in content from your friends, allows liking and sharing, and includes full comment conversations. Facebook doesn’t appear to work in Cliqset Mobile yet, but I’m sure it will roll out soon.

I was a bit concerned about Facebook privacy with the new integration, but, so far, it seems solid. For example, I’ve noticed that it’s not possible to share someone else’s Facebook post. You might be able to share said post if the Facebook user has it set to Everyone, but I haven’t run across that yet. I wouldn’t mind a note from Cliqset detailing how everything works.

Facebook was’t the only service to get more functionality. You can also integrate Digg 2.0’s My News feature into Cliqset — and when you like a Digg post on Cliqset, it’s the same as digging it on Digg.

For a final bit of new coolness, earlier in September Cliqset added Social Search functionality. Users can search “Twitter, Facebook, Google Buzz and each of the 80+ services” Cliqset is integrated with, and the general public can search Cliqset, Facebook, Twitter and Google Buzz at

I like Cliqset — a lot — and I was happy to learn that the service is capable of being a one-stop-shop for almost everything I do online. In fact, my reasons for ever logging into Facebook or Digg just got a whole lot smaller.

What do you think of the new Cliqset features?
