If you are using social networks, you are also creating favorites. On Facebook you ‘like’, on Twitter and Google Reader you ‘star’, on Delicious and Pinboard you ‘bookmark’ and so on.
== Find Favorites ==
Instead of spreading your favorites across different networks, use Favs to sync them to your Mac. Don't waste any more time on searching for your favorite content - Favs has a powerful search feature build right into the application that makes finding what you like a breeze.
== Follow Favorites ==
Many favorites are public, for example on Twitter, Flickr or Vimeo. This allows you to follow the favorites of persons you like and just see their hand-picked articles. For those sources Favs marks new entries as ‘unread’ and you can use Favs as a sophisticated Reader app.

What's New in Version 1.4.1
Fixes Twitter API problems.
I'll start by saying that I don’t use this application often, and I don’t foresee other people will either. When I do use it however, usually when I want to see something I previously favorited or liked, it’s incredibly handy! I find myself almost relying on it now to keep track of all my favorites across the internet, exactly what it was designed for. If you like keeping your social media organized, this is a great tool, and in my opinion worth every penny of the price.
