Could you be more efficient with your time on Facebook and Twitter?

As our social connections have grown to be borderline impossible to manage, new solutions are emerging to help us clean up the mess.

Nutshell, a free tool offered by Constant Contact for anyone to use, will email you a daily summary of your social media streams at the time of your choosing.

Nutshell Mail


Think about the way Google Alerts works. Instead of constantly Googling yourself, Google delivers anything that hits the Web to your inbox based on the keywords you provide.


Nutshell behaves very similarly — the difference being it is based on social activity, not keywords. Nutshell Mail will deliver what you tell it to from Facebook, Twitter and more, including wall posts, messages, friend requests and even pokes!

An additional feature I love about Nutshell is that when you do want to comment or interact with the content it sends you it happens externally of Facebook, in a separate and simple interface. Think about how many times you have logged into Facebook to respond to one notification and an hour later you are still there! Nutshell helps solve this problem with its own user interface.

If you value your time, know you are spending too much of it on social media sites and do not want to actually log in to Facebook and Twitter so frequently, yet still be present, give Nutshell try.

Nutshell Mail is 100 percent free — just be prepared for some Constant Contact ads, which I think is a pretty fair trade (you do not need to be a Constant Contact customer to use Nutshell Mail).

By the way, is this the kind of tool that makes your life easier?
