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.

# Yahoo Desktop
# NetVibes

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.

Netvibes Drag & Follow Widget Modules For Twitter, Facebook And Myspace

July 27th, 2009

Netvibes looks to be finally adding small new features once a month again. Or at least that is what i hope for so we can keep them in the loop longer. The new small feature they introduced is a feature called “Drag & Follow” to the Twitter, Facebook and Myspace Widget Modules. This feature allows you to follow the update from a specific user from those specific stream by dragging the username out of the widget. This creates another widget instantly focused on the updates of that user.

But if you want to read it from Netvibes own words, this is how they explain it:

With the rapid growth of real-time content and activity feeds from sources like Facebook and Twitter, many people are struggling to keep track of multiple friends and interests that change day-to-day. Today, we launched a novel solution and industry first: drag-and-follow widgets. New Facebook, MySpace and Twitter widgets now enable users to instantly create new widgets to follow new interests simply by dragging and dropping any feed item to their personalized page.
