Online life management? I wouldn’t mind some of that, and newly open-to-the-public ZooLoo.com could be a solution.
Firstly, if you’re so inclined, you can host your life using ZooLoo’s services and your own domain name, making it more personal than using some-non-descript-name.forgettable-web-service.com.
- “My ZooLoo” dashboard which aggregates and manages all your online media and other social networks;
- Easy site building tools;
- personal/pro blogging publisher;
- online life organization tools (calendar, lists, contacts, event invitation etc.)
There’s a lot of features beginning with “z” (you know, like Apple’s taken most of the “i”s) â€” the zSocial integrated social platform, zPrints for printing real photos, zLife, zCreator and zControls (privacy controls).
Now of course you could set all this up online with the right knowledge and time, from buying a domain name to installing some CMS or blogging platform and then adding widgets/plugins to handle social media integration, but ZooLoo is the sort of service that just lets you get on with it without needing to mess about under the hood.
There are two versions, free and paid, with the $29.99 per year “Plus” option giving you the domain name, 3GB of storage and unlimited pages.
Plenty of features to play with from the off, then, and presumably word will spread when converts start showing off their shiny new domain name to their friends. Any new service will be playing catchup to the big names in social networking but, in the blurb list at least, ZooLoo.com has a lot of promise.
