    In System Preferences, there is an option to login to your Yahoo! and Aol email (I'm guessing these get downloaded into Mail) accounts, though there is also a Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Vimeo and Flickr account options. What are these for? There are no applications pre-installed on my Mac for these.

    Thanks.

    Also, quick updates from the Notification Center. If you have FaceBook & Twitter accounts set up, you can click the Notification Center icon and have a button at the top for a quick tweet or status update.
