Integrating Facebook, Jaiku, Twitter in a stream - leave Pownce out of the loop

It's a real time waster going through five or six social networks repeating your status (micro blogging?) around. It would be great if these platforms offered a way to accept stuff in and out by means other than visiting their own application on a browser or gadget.

So after a while I decided to leave Pownce completely behind... Pownce does offer a client based on Adobe AIR, but it won't import anything for status, and it's not at the same level of user numbers as Facebook.

So I used to have an arrangement like this:

Manually update Geekzone Friends;
Manually update Facebook;
Manually update Pownce;
Pownce personal RSS feed routed to Jaiku;
Jaiku personal RSS feed router to Twitter through Twitterfeed.

I've now removed Pownce out of this to something like this:

Manually update Geekzone Friends;
Manually update Facebook;
Facebook personal RSS feed routed to Jaiku;
Jaiku personal RSS feed router to Twitter through Twitterfeed.

Granted the first two in the chain currently do not have a way to import feeds, but they can be used as the top of the chain. Since Geekzone Friends provide a personal feed (with more filtering options coming soon), then it would be great if Facebook actually accepted some input from RSS for its user stauts.

And if Pownce ever consider this again and start accepting RSS feeds as input for their status then I would be happy to add it to the mix again.

As for Geekzone Friends, as I said, there are some more custom filtering options coming for the RSS feeds - and I am working on actually importing feeds for Geekzone Friends Status. Just give me some time.
