Hi all

Just wondering if anybody can help me on a Widget related question?

Currently, I am using Widgetbox, however due to the limitations on their service, I now want to create a widget delivery system myself. The front-end stuff is quite straight forward, however, maintaining/updating the connectivity with the different Social Networks (myspace, facebook etc.) and blog API's is what is very time consuming. My question is... Is there any company out there that just provides the connectivity component?

Many thanks in advance...

Hmmm, have you checked out Gigya? I'm not sure they are exactly what you are looking for.

Yes, Gigya and Clearspring are the two best companies for this.

We are using Gigya right now for our polls widget. It works fine most of the time but it still under development if you know what I mean.

Does anyone can post their experience with Clearspring?

Good luck with your project!
