“We developed our service to work through email because it’s an application that everyone knows well. We didn’t want to force people to log into yet another destination Website or to download another bloated piece of software,” said David Lyman, NutshellMail co-founder and COO. “Our mission is to give busy professionals, power users and novices alike an easy way to manage their social networks from a single place. Through our email-based service, people can manage and interact with their social Web lives in one place to be more connected and productive.”
While other tools require users to download desktop clients or log into yet another Website, NutshellMail allows users to manage their activity through the platform they are most comfortable with: their email inbox. It gives users an easy way to monitor and manage all of today’s most popular social networking accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and MySpace, etc.) as well as those extra email accounts that often go unchecked.

· Keep track of Facebook pages and friend lists to ensure that users never miss a post from their favorite Facebook people and pages
· Twitter lists and search phrase tracking to ensure that users do not miss Tweets from those they care most about
