with one comment

google friend connectGoogle Friend Connect is a social service by Google that lets you join a particular site’s group as a member and lets you connect with the other members and your friends. Compared to other social services, Google Friend Connect is relatively new and unique. Just recently, Google Friend Connect has been updated with a new feature update known as Recommendation Gadgets which lets you and your visitors “recommend” the best content on your site. In short, here is a quick excerpt from the Google blog on how it works, along with a quick introductory video:

Members can recommend the content they like, anything from a whole page to a single photo, by simply clicking a button. Then you and anyone who visits your site can see what parts of your site are the most popular. The items with the most votes will surface to the top of the list, making it easier for others to find even if it’s buried deep within your site. You can even see which members have recommended a given item and learn more about them.

Socialthing For Websites: The Next Big Thing In Social Networking?

leave a comment »

socialthingSocialthing has been quiet for quite a while with no new developments. But until recently, Socialthing has launched a new services called Socialthing for Websites which is supposed to be an “advanced suite of social networking services” that enable site owners to connect with the readers. Basically, it just means that website owners can just now interact with their readers through social networking- and all that in real-time. All the readers have to do is to sign in with their AIM username and password and gain access to other social services like Twitter and Flickr through AOL’s Open Authentication API as  well as chat with one another through the chat: all of these in a neat toolbar at the bottom of the site. Meanwhile, The Boot is using this service on which you can use it to go for a quick trial. Socialthing for Websites looks highly functional and impressive but it is still in beta to allow more testing and better improvements. Could Socialthing be the next big thing to overtake Facebook Connect in the area of social networking integration? We will let you know once Socialthing for Websites gets out of beta.
