LiveIntent –Twitter follow suggest

December 28th, 2009

LiveIntent (beta–Invite only) offers a widget that allows you to add Twitter users with a suggestion to follow them. Lets say you have 5 editors on your blog. You can add them to the LiveIntent widget as suggestions to follow on Twitter. You could add anyone that you think is worthwhile to follow.

The widget:
At this point, the widget appears as a small “Share This” chic-let style embed that, when you mouseover it, a box appears that displays your suggested Twitter users. The LiveIntent widget is currently using JavaScript.

LiveIntent is focused on “Making social media connections that matter”.
The actual scope of LiveIntent is rather fuzzy. There is a LiveIntent blog post that indicates the direction of the company.

One of the things that we discuss a lot here at LiveIntent is, appropriately, intent. Consumer intent. Advertiser intent. Publisher intent. Even our intent! The real-time web is all about intentions and our goal is to digest and learn from these intentions. Our theory is that the more alignment of intent that we can create, the higher the utility that we provide.
…Technological innovation has long been fueled by advertising dollars and if social media is going to continue it’s explosive growth, it too will require a sustainable advertising model. At LiveIntent, we hope that we can create this model by providing meaningful, targeted, intent-aligned connections on social media.

Skribit Get Topic Ideas from Readers

November 17th, 2007

Readers can submit topic suggestions via widget

What is

Skribit, created during Startup Weekend Atlanta, is a three-day entrepreneurial blitz designed to conceive, develop and launch a fully functional web company within 54 hours. A team of approximately 60 entrepreneurs consisting of application developers, business developers, designers and marketers launched Skribit to strengthen interaction between bloggers and their readers.

But what does it do?
Skribit allows blog readers to submit topic suggestions and rate other suggestions via a widget right on your blog. With the ‘Frog’ sounding name and associated theme its no wonder that hot topics would be located in the ‘Whats Hoppin’!’ list.

Why though?
Blog owners can then evaluate suggestions for future blog posts. Essentially taking the ‘pulse’ of the readership. The idea is to cater to what your readers want from you. This makes sense in any business. Especially in blogging, where success is defined by the amount of traffic you get.
Keep your readers happy and they tell their friends…and so on…and so on…

How do I get it? is currently in private beta. I have applied to try out the widget and hopefully the approval won’t take forever.
So I have no idea what type of code is used or whether you can change sizes and colors to suit your blog. Anyone with any experience with creating widgets would do well to add these features to their widget set up.
