AMSTERDAM, 17th July 2012 – AVG Technologies (NYSE: AVG), the provider of internet and mobile security to 114 million active users, today announced that the free social desktop app MultiMi™ has emerged from beta testing with a major update as a safe and smart way for people to manage their online social networks.

"The post-beta MultiMi incorporates a year's worth of performance enhancements and feature requests we received from many engaged and active social media consumers," said Eidan Apelbaum, CEO of Zbang It, creator of MultiMi. "Our testers did a great job providing us exactly the feedback our developers needed for us to evaluate, update, and elevate the platform as compared to competing solutions."
Improvements resulting from the beta testing include:
- A major aesthetic overhaul
- Full home and tab customization
- Ability to edit and save photos from various sources
- A built-in RSS reader
- Support for Google Reader
- Support for Pocket (formerly Read It Later)

"With MultiMi, AVG offers users the tools to get the most out of Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. Whether they want to post commentaries, tweet news, share holiday photos, or post images of a new fascination – MultiMi makes the process fast and safe. With AVG's LinkScanner security technology, MultiMi protects a user's personal information from the worst of the Web's threats."
