My niche social network uses a flash widget that pulls information from our mysql database and displays it in the flash widget on the users profile, each user has their own flash widget that displays their niceh info.

The widget can also be embedded and we have found some trouble with myspace blocking the flash link back to the users page, my developer found a hack around it but it had me nervous since i spent a good bit on the dev job for it. My question is should i continue to focus on this flash widget or look at another technolgy.

This widget plays a vital role in our site and displays important information for our users and many users use the embed feature to their other social networking sites. We need the widget to be interactive so if they change a variable in their profile/dbase the widget displays the change as well. What are my other options for database driven widgets geared towards maybe open social or web sync ability? Thanks
