The Social Networker

by Chris Miller at 08:44:07 PM on Thursday, January 10th, 2008

So once again Chris Saad of (Engagd and Particls) points to a site a team member of created that comes out as simple and amazing as I would expect. Jon (of Cluztr) seems to have whipped up Tagurself.

Simply enter some social profile URL, RSS feed or even a URL of your own and it reads the current tags and other info and outputs a breathing tag cloud. Of course, you can whip it out as a customized widget or Facebook app.

Why is this so amazing to me? The simplicity folks! We spend so much time tagging other information with social bookmarking and blog postings, you have a hard time putting out tags on yourself. Lotus Connections and some other social sites offer the ability, but outputting it into a portable format that works on any site or webpage is the solution. With the widget, you select the color (no pop-up wheel yet, hint Jon!) and sizing and paste it somewhere. Or choose the easy route and plug it into Facebook. I hope they find a way for me to grab multiple feeds or I have to finish my social profile or single mega-feed

So while the page and application grows in the short future, I will be using it, do you get yourself?

    Hint: You can put in multiple URLs comma seperated :)

    Great idea. One thing I noticed when I entered my feed URL in, was that the tags didn't all fit. Some of the tags were downright strange (cat, shoe, hand, tag). None of which are categories, or topics I've discussed. The tag cloud on is a better indicator of the site on my site.

One dog, a Pug. He has been on this world before and seems to understand slippers and a fine cigar. Mind you that is him in the chair and not me.

Let us now also add a deranged cat that is in the process of being toilet trained. Update: Toilet traning was very very close.

Character Bio:

This will take far more time than I have today. I will start with I was born and still live in St. Louis, MO. Even though for a couple years I was never, ever here and always on the road, this is smack in the middle of the US. Everything is just a few hour flight. That part is nice. No beach/ocean/coast isn't the best. But with the travel I make up for it.

Don't Panic

Looking to find me in person? Here is where I will be.
