Social networking is all the rage, even for genealogy. In an effort to try one of the more current if not fully proven tools (it is in a beta phase), I have installed Wibiya.
Wibiya provides a web toolbar that enables blogs and websites to integrate the most exciting services and web applications into their blog or website. Our platform is a one-stop shop for fully customizable, easily manageable third part web applications that can also be tracked for statistics.
The bar may be minimized by clicking on the down arrow at the bottom right. That way if you are like me and use a netbook heavily, the screen real estate can be freed up for content viewing.
Finally, you will note that the toolbar offers several functions which are already on ManyRoads. So, there is really nothing new there. However if the toolbar works well, we will be able to further cleanup and consolidate these social networking functions into a new and more flexible format.
I welcome any comments or critique on the use and value of this technology.
