A bunch of email services helping you get perspective on social these days.
Summify, News.me, and others send you a daily email that highlights key links/reading from the day.
And another one which is cute is Timehop, which send you your social production of a year ago. Which is refreshing.
In the real time world, perspective, relevance, aggregation are useful and apparently email aint a bad way to see it (I suppose starting pages and portals and feeds are not ideal for this)
My timehop from a year ago (yes, I love myself):

Proof that 140c is too few in twitter. And that 160 is perfecto. Next up: a 7-minute abs workout. http://icio.us/hyaamj
People who deny vaccines, well, “they kill children”. Gates is right. And Windows 7 is awesome. http://icio.us/SUw76Q
Stimlus worked. *Except* for teachers and police which *obviously* should have been cut to the bone…. http://icio.us/Cf1hpB
