One Widget, 20 Platforms, Your Blog, Infinite Ways to Change the World…

By Tom Watson on August 20, 2008No Comment

Congrats to the Social Actions team on the launch of their new widget, which recommends ways to take action on behalf of causes related to the content of any web page. Tailor-made for blogs (and I’m going to experiment with it myself), the widget is powered by the new Social Actions open API – so you probably guess this is just the first step in rolling out cause-related actions from many databases. According to Social Actions, “the widget automatically identifies the keywords on any page and lists social change campaigns related to the stuff you’re writing about. These campaigns are gathered from social action platforms like Kiva, DonorsChoose, Change.org, GlobalGiving, Care2, Idealist.org, and fourteen others.” You can go get it and read more here.
