What are widgets?
A web widget is a small application that you can embed in a social network site, blog, or website to share content. For example, you can develop your own widget to push out your content or you can copy the code from an existing widget to automatically bring content into your website or blog. Common content of widgets are photo and video viewers, polls, fundraising, or RSS feeds (e.g. Twitter, news headlines on a particular subject). There are many free or inexpensive services that provide tools to create, customize, and distribute your widget. Some examples include Snacktools, Gigya, and Widgetbox.
How can I use widgets in response to HIV?
- Share content from your blog or website about HIV prevention, testing, treatment policy, or research.
- Share photos or videos from HIV-related events and activities, like an AIDS walk or benefit.
- Conduct polls or surveys about your HIV services.
- Support and automatically track HIV-related fundraising efforts.
