The growth in popularity of the real-time web has proven that it's no longer enough to get information periodically, but users want updates as they happen. lu.ly helps meet this demand, by providing friend updates to users in real-time, wherever users are on the web.

lu.ly key user features include:

  •      Get facebook friends' updates and new tweets in real-time
  •      Update facebook status and tweet
  •      Shorten and share URL's (using the lu.ly domain)

lu.ly also has a publisher program where any website can have their own white-label browser extension that brings the site's twitter stream into users' browsers (does not require user to have a twitter account).
