How to combine social network feeds into one embeddable widget

Keeping a clean website

Often when designing a website, a business owner says “I want these 800 badges and widgets” and the designer says “I want 0 badges and widgets to keep the UI clean and the site fast.” The battle rages on between function and form, but there are tools out there to help bridge these two entities’ desires.

One tool now available is Zooshia is a new widget that calls itself the “first social widget” and enables websites (and blogs) to embed a widget that combines any custom combination of feeds from a site owner’s Facebook, Twitter or YouTube accounts, saving the designer some headache by offering a compromise- one widget instead of three.

Customization available

Zooshia enables users to create a single feed which generates one embed code that can be copied and pasted into the website or blog. Colors and format can be customized and the tool is free.

It’s a good and useful tool for website and blog owners, and the only downside we see is that the tool encourages site visitors to “ZOOSH IT” which could confuse consumers and detract from their willingness or ability to share, but it could solve the problem of widget abusers adding dozens of embed codes to their site that slow it down and clutter it up.
