sobees desktop, new Facebook permission

We updated sobees desktop to integrate Facebook new permission. If you experience and issue with Facebook service, please delete your Facebook account in the application options:

Then add again Facebook (“Add a service” menu on the top left of the application). You will be asked to validate the new permission and you should be all set once the new permissions have been granted.

sobees improves its already powerful desktop app (updated)

Here is an important update for our social application sobees beta! We have been working hard to bring not only huge improvements but also great new features and services.

First of all, we worked on our Twitter service. Thanks to xAuth, we now offer higher security as well as more API calls per hour (350 instead of 150). In addition, and since TwitPic does not support oAuth, your pictures will now be uploaded on Tweetphoto!

We also added two new great services that many of you were waiting for: an RSS reader and New York Times, which lets you read the newspapers’ news and articles directly into sobees!

Lastly, we have now added Riotwise sponsored content to Twitter in this application too. Since it is linked to Twitter’s trending topics and to your own search query in the Search, this sponsored content is highly interesting! No need to worry however: for now, and until we release the premium version of sobees beta, you will be able to disable these ads. Therefore, simply head to the Options.

We have always been doing our very best to provide you with the best applications on the market and are really excited to share such good news with you. We hope you will enjoy this new update!


Update : The option for removing sponsored content from the timeline was unfortunately not visible in the options. We just released an update to fix that (version Make sure to get the latest version if you want to remove the sponsored content and then go in Options – General).



My Social Networks Important Update

Our Yahoo! Mail application, My Social Networks, just got an update!

While this application hadn’t changed since we launched it, back in December, we have been working a great deal on sobees and sobees web, bringing huge improvements, tons of new features and great new services. This all had to be implemented in My Social Networks, and this release is therefore an important one!


First of all, we have added LinkedIn to the application! So those of you who use this social network will, from now on, be able to update your own status and get others’ updates, view connections and profiles and search LinkedIn.

Apart from that addition, we worked on improving the existing services, most particularly the Twitter one which now includes lists as well as the official retweet APIs.

Thanks to the Twitter lists, you will not have to recreate your groups every single time you launch the application but will instead find the very ones you created on .

Regarding the retweet functionality, it will now display the avatar of both the person who is being retweeted and the one who is retweeting instead of the usual RT@username. However, should you click within the text entry field, you will recover the old way of retweeting.

My social network is available for the approximately 29 million users in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy so if you have a Yahoo! Mail account, don’t hesitate to try and launch our application and enjoy these brand new improvements!
