mybucketz is a free online service where you can connect and combine feeds and status updates from Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Tumblr and Twitter. Not only that you can combine feeds from various different social networks, but you can also group them with the help of Buckets. In each Bucket you can put groups, friends, pages and individual feeds from the connected social networks and that way only access sports updates, music updates or updates from only some of your contacts, for example.
On the image below you can see that we have setup ILoveFreeSoftware Facebook group update feed, and now instead of having to open up Facebook to check for updates, we simply opened up the Bucket where we placed our Facebook feed, and clicked on the Refresh Feed button. Interface of mybucketz is very simple, not clunky at all, with just one menu in the top right corner of the screen. You can also post to social networks that you’ve setup directly from mybucketz.
