Social networking overload?  
I currently have accounts on:

Livejournal, Mixi, Library Thing, Twitter, Couch Surfing, Myspace, Facebook, Classmates.com, Orkut, LinkedIn, Youtube, DeviantART, Gaia Online, Last.fm, Meetup.com, Diaryland, and Xanga.

I had to check a list of social networking sites on Wikipedia in order to list them all. Sure, some of those I got an account a long time back and haven't touched in years, but others would be nice to keep tabs on without keeping an actual tab open for each!

I tried out something called Tabber, but it doesn't support many of the sites I use. It lets you point directly to a blog URL, but seems to just give those updates as from "Unknown." Plus, Livejournal has friends-only entries, and there's no way to get those in.

Has anyone else found a nice solution? Should I learn more about RSS?

google "social networking aggregator"

trillian astra (I don't know if trillian basic/pro have it, astra's still in beta) has plugins for myspace and facebook, and I believe the xmpp support is also in Pro (it's in Astra). Astra also has skype and twitter support. I believe I set it up using xmpp for livejournal, but it only connected you to the chatting aspect of LJ, not journal status updates.

You forgot a couple of 4-letter ones in your list.
Although, I'm not sure if those count as "social networking" or "bbs" ..

I live in my friends page. Any site that I am interested in that has an RSS feed, gets syndicated into LJ and goes onto my friends page. That way, I have a single page to watch for updates -- it has served me really well all these years.
