Welcome to another installment of the â€˜Weekly Social Media sites, tools and posts round-upâ€™.
1. Tangler Live is a superb tool that allows you to have group conversation in real time. Create your room and then embed it into your post about the same event/issue – works great for live events when you want to speak to people interested in the same theme.
2. Web 2.0 Suicide Machine. Here is what the Guardian says: “”The Dutch website created by your unfriendly neighbourhood medialab moddr_ is designed to end users’ social lives on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and LinkedIn in a spectacular way.”
3. Avatara. Most people have seen the film Avatar, well now you can create your own avatar usable in over 30 online destinations including Facebook.
4. Sprout Pitch. Simply pitch your start-ups, projects and ideas to the world via video – “think elevator pitch”
5. Collecta Widget Builder lets you build customisable widgets for your website very easily. Just grab the code and embed it into your site!
