EzineArticles Buzz

For fun, we created a mash-up of Blogspot, Twitter, Technorati, Digg and YouTube to show a snapshot of how or what people are discussing relating to EzineArticles.

Any suggestions for how we could better display & aggregate the buzz that is generated by EzineArticles members, fans and friends?



Hi Chris

This is a great way to market using the Social Networks and RSS feeds which these sites have.

Thank you for showing the lead and being so creative.

Hi Chris,

I like option 1. Very neat and organized. But it looks a bit too plain. Maybe it would be good if EzineArticles can use the bubble layout on option 1. :)

Hi Chris,

Definitely number 1, shows you what the stories are and where they’re coming from. Speech bubbles are great if you’re interested in cartoons.

Curious: Are there any other feeds we should consider adding to this buzz tracker?

Option 1 is the best, because it gives people the option of looking at comments from the source(s) they deem most creditable.

Option 1. Great idea. I think you should stick with the top social nets. You could add lots more, but I think it works to keep it simple.

Love #4 bubbles but like #1’s use of separate headings.

Many Squidoo authors add their EzineArticles links to their lenses too.. not sure how you’d capture…

Chris, I like #1 the best.

How about Warrior Forum or other IM forums. There’s always a thread or two in there about you guys.

Did you know that on first glance the physics behind the flight of a Bee, appears to be such that it cannot actually fly, even though it does in observation? Indeed, we ought to consider this when determining which Mash-Up makes the most sense. That’s my BuzzOption Opinion, that way no one gets stung.
