Google “Buzz It” share button

February 12th, 2010

Google Buzz and the Buzz It button:

Google released “Buzz” on Feb 9/10 2010 and it has become very popular. So popular in fact that within hours a “Buzz It” button was created.

This button allows your users to easily share your content on Buzz with a single click.


(found this button on this awesome post about BUZZ on AEXT.net Design Magazine)

You will need to edit the appropriate fields in the code to reflect your website’s info.

Have a blog? Increase your traffic by adding a simple Buzz widget. In your blog’s theme, simply use the following URL (replace the appropriate data):


Mashable’s “Buzz It” button.

Head on over to Mashable, TechCrunch & others to see how their usage of the “Buzz It” button has turned out. (Warning: Mashable sports a GIANT Google Ad near the top of their page that resembles some “Buzz” functionality.)

Widgets for Haiti relief

January 14th, 2010

With the earthquake disaster in Haiti comes a huge outpouring of support from all corners of the globe. Twitter, Facebook and others are being used to share stories and spread the latest information.

There are now widgets which you can add to your website to show your support for the people of Haiti and the ongoing relief efforts.

Compassion International in conjunction with Sprout Builder, have come up with three tasteful widgets that appear to display a small bit of information regarding the current situation in Haiti. There is also a link to a donation page at Compassion International. Also included in the widget is the information needed to donate via SMS text message.

Here is a live version of the widget.

The other two widgets appear below.

Viral Content Widget from BuzzFeed

January 8th, 2010


BuzzFeed.com tracks everything thats currently HOT on the Internet and everything that’s about to become HOT!

They have a customizable JavaScript widget (seen below) that can be configured to show a number of the latest topics. Custom colors and sizes with image size choices as well.
WordPress Plugin and PHP/PERL scripts are also available.

There’s even a static image badge if you want to promote BuzzFeed. (hmmm…doesn’t static mean non-changing? This image changes.)

BuzzFeed Tracks the Web’s Obsessions in Real Time.

We feature the kind of things you’d want to pass along to your friends: an outrageous video that’s about to go viral, an obscure subculture breaking into the mainstream, a juicy bit of gossip that everyone at the office will be talking about tomorrow, or an ordinary guy having his glorious 15-minutes of fame. And when you read BuzzFeed, you’ll always know the movies, music, and products that are on the rise and worth your time.

…and BuzzFeed wouldn’t forget all of those that don’t have websites to paste widgets into. So they have created a mountain of options for those of us that simply don’t want the hassle of maintaining a website.

# Apple Dashboard
# Yahoo Desktop
# NetVibes
# iGoogle
# PageFlakes

Whats curiously missing is a BuzzFeed app for the iPhone. You can always point your mobile browser to http://m.buzzfeed.com/ but I’, sure its just not as good as an actual BuzzFeed app could be.
