Today, I’d like to talk to you about data fragmentation. It’s something I’m sure all of you have dealt with to some degree.
These days, we’re all drowning in a sea of content. I’ve got a two different emails, a Paypal; Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google + accounts; and I browse Flickr, Tumblr, and Reddit. My Google Chrome bookmarks are an absolute nightmare. I’m not even going to bother trying to organize them at this point. There’s also a whole host of extensions and games I’ve installed in Chrome, though I trimmed a significant number of those down in an effort to reduce the amount of bloat in my browser. And all that…it’s just the tip of the iceberg. I could go on all day about the various sites I follow, pages I read, accounts I utilize….
I won’t bother, as I’m certain most of you can relate.
Getting all this chaos organized is a rather daunting task. Thankfully, there’s a whole host of applications and extensions designed for the express purpose of extending a helping hand to those poor souls desperately trying to organize their data on a host of disparate websites. Nexos is one such app – and is mercifully available in offline mode, as well.
It incorporates content from whatever sources you choose into an easy-to-navigate landing page. Even better, all this content can be organized while you’re offline – though it won’t sync with Chrome until you log in, obviously.
So, let’s do the math here: you can consolidate all your bookmarks, favorites, and other content into a single app, and choose to organize all this stuff as you see fit. Not bad, right? Currently, Nexon supports most major content sharing sites and social networks, with more being added on a regular basis.
The app can be found here.
