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.

MultiMi is a social media integrator that helps people stay in touch with the people that matter in their life.

They can drag a tweet into an email while simultaneously updating their Facebook status or move a photo from email into Flickr or Picasa. Not only does MultiMi help users to seamlessly integrate multiple channels, it protects people’s online activity with AVG’s renowned LinkScanner® technology.

”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.”

• A built-in RSS reader
