Back in May 2008, in post titled Multiple Personality Disorder I talked about the need I felt, to manage and control your online personalities (the professional one of LinkedIn, the social one of Facebook, your dating sites profiles, etc). Today I read about a service called Chi.mp that aims at exactly that.
Chi.mp allows you to gather your social networks profiles in one place, under your own domain name (i.e gorilla.mp), create online “personas”, such as public persona; friends persona; professional persona, and publish and push your updates back to your social networks.
My first impressions from using the site, is that it requires too much work, and the process isn’t made fun. The only way service like this can work, is if “bringing your online personas”is entartaining and engaging process, and not a drag. Nice concept, though.
