Flotzam is an application that visualizes your social network updates. Every time someone posts new media or comments to mash-up of Facebook, Flickr, Digg, Twitter, YouTube, and blogs accounts, Flotzam floats a message across your screen. You can also add any RSS feed to receive updates from other sites.
Using this simple application, you can configure what you want to watch and the speed in which you see it. Want to view what your Twitter friends are doing? Want to see the photos your friends have posted on Facebook? Or maybe their photos on Flickr, too? Download now and have all of your photos, Tweets, Diggs, Facebook invites & pokes and feeds come to you!
Flotzam doesn’t offer much more than a pretty visualization. You can click on a message to open a web browse and see the message in its original context. But there’s no way to post your own updates from Flotzam. You can install the application as a screen saver, which could actually be useful. But unfortunately Flotzam’s a bit of a resource hog, so you might be better off using a blank screen as a screen saver if you want to save energy while your computer is idle.
