Ping.fm is a simple and free service that makes updating your social networks easy. Ping.fm is designed to enable you to push out a message to multiple social networks very easily. Ping.fm is one of two social media publishers we will discuss, and is especially interesting (and potentially dangerous) because you can update all your social media networks from ping.fm by sending a SMS text message to a private number or to a special email address.
his makes it very easy and efficient to post too many different sites, but also potentially dangerous in the event your phone is lost or should fall into the wrong hands. In 2010 a major marketing firm was fired from a big 3 automotive contract after the ad executive accidentally posted a status update to all the automotive companies social pages using vulgarity in comments that he intended to post on his own social media pages. Use ping.fm with care!
