What are widgets?
A web widget is a small application that you can embed in a social network, blog, or website. You can develop your own widget or copy the code from an existing widget. Some widgets allow you to embed a photo or video viewer, conduct polls, or fundraise. Others allow you to incorporate news or headlines from other websites.
There are many free or inexpensive services that provide tools to create your own widget. Some examples include Clearspring and Gigya . Widgetbox , and Sprout can help you develop and distribute your widget.
