While at CES last week, Traci Toguchi caught up with John Yamasaki, who is the Community Evangelist for Seesmic. They talked about the fact that Seesmic has now acquired Ping.FM! You have a lot of friends, and they’re not all in one place! With this merger, you can now update 50 social networks using Seesmic+Ping.fm from email, chat, sms, Blackberry, Android, or the web itself!

From Seesmic’s press release:

Ping.fm has more than half a million active users who post daily from any device just by sending an email, a text message or chat – simple tools that existed since the early stages of the Internet are available on all connected devices. This is why Ping.fm is extremely easy to use and access –just send an update and it can touch on 50 social networks!

This is huge news for many of us. Send your status updates to everyone – everywhere! – in just a few seconds. You don’t have to worry about missing an important site, or leaving someone out. Update the sites that YOU choose, and ignore the ones you don’t feel you need.

I don’t know about you, but this is going to save people like me a mountain of time! It’s compatible with virtually any Internet-capable device in the world, so you don’t even need to worry about whether your particular phone or gadget will work. It will!

It’s automagic!

Thanks to Creative for sending Traci a Vado 3 to use during the conference!
