Posts Tagged ‘myspace’ Get FREE virtual gifts

November 18th, 2008 is a new widget that allows the user to receive “Virtual” gifts from any visitor to their page.

How it works:
Anyone that wishes to leave you a gift can simply choose from the thousands (millions?) of items in the catalog.

The site provides an easy to use Amazon search that gives you category and keyword options, helping to narrow down to that perfect gift. And best of all, you don’t have to leave MyVGift to search. It’s all done right on-site.

Once you find the gift you want to give, add it via the little icon on the far right and then customize it with a little note and your name (optional for Anonymous giving)

Each gift links to its respective page…in case you want to actually buy one.

The widget install:
Grabbing this widget and adding it to your blog or page is as simple as 1-2-3.
1. pick your style (Vertical or Horizontal)
2. pick your color (16 million colors I believe. With Hex option)
3. Either copy the code (to paste) or enter your login info for over 20 different social pages and blog platforms.

“The only virtual gift widget on the web that works on multiple social platforms:
Friendster, Facebook, Orkut, Bebo, Tagged, Blogger, Hi5, LiveSpaces, Piczo, Freewebs, LiveJournal, BlackPlanet, MyYearbook, WordPress, Vox, TypePad, Xanza, Multiply, iGoogle, NetVibes, Pageflakes, MiGente, and others.”

Try it:
I’ve added the MyVGift widget to the sidebar. Feel free to give a “Virtual” gift to widgets lab. You’ll find it very easy to use. Heck…give two gifts! Christmas time is just around the corner.

RockYou Wants To Be A Social Network Game Widget Powerhouse

October 7th, 2008


Unless Valleywag is now making stuff up in a deliberate manner. they had a good report on the desire of RockYou to be “the Electronic Arts of Social Networks and build games for Social Networks” in the words of RockYou CEO Lance Tokuda.

This means is not just Slide adding more things to focus on and to try out. this means that the eternal rivalry of RockYou with Slide will come to an abrupt end in the months to come as they will no longer overlap directly with each other.

The things i said about Slide also apply to RockYou as a great example of how a quite profitable Widget Startup is forced and pushed into constant reinvention because of how strongly funded and valued it is. give it needs to compensate with projections of revenue in order to live to that funding and valuation.

The same goes for the slow reaction they had to Facebook obvious plans to shun them and how putting too much into one single Social Network Platform was their worst move.

One of the first steps they took in this direction was their acquisition of one of the Top Games in Facebook some months ago. there is a simple problem with RockYou new focus. A stiff competition with Zynga, SGN and things like Come2Play. this puts them in a position of Underdog instead of Top Dog. a position they still have in Facebook. Rockyou will face a uphill battle outside Facebook.

OpenSocial gets to 350 Million Users, growing, but not enough.

August 22nd, 2008


Techcruch is reporting that OpenSocial, the multi social network application platform backed by Google has reached to an estimated 350 Million users. while this sounds like a whole lot. the install are not anywhere close (around 150 million ) to Facebook Application Platform with over 700 million installs. even then, 5 new partners will join and this project the platform to 500 million users. but projection to see if OpenSocial Application Installs can get a lot more close to Facebook is not available.

This does makes me wonder if OpenSocial would get to need be supported in at least 15 social networks in order for the number of installs gets anywhere close to Facebook 700+ million installs. that is without questioning the actual use of the apps in the social networks part of the OpenSocial Foundation and Facebook.


OpenSocial Now Reaches 350 Million Users, And Growing
