Guest Post: Top five MySpace widgets

So many widgets, so little time. Here Hacking MySpace (www.myspaceismyplace.com) author John Pospisil lists his five favorite MySpace widgets.

SpringWidgets RSS reader (http://www.thespringbox.com ) - this is a great, customisable widget that allows you to display RSS feeds from one or more blogs on your MySpace profile. While there are a number of RSS widgets around, this is the only one I've found that works with MySpace (do get in touch if you know of more). This is a great way of automatically presenting fresh content on your MySpace profile.

YourSpins (http://yourspins.com ) is a nice variation of the music code web site in that it allows you to remix professional audio tracks, and then play your remixed tracks on your MySpace profile. The online interface is great. If you want to feature music on your MySpace profile that has your own creative stamp, give YourSpins a try.

Geovisitors (http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/geovisitors/) - ever wondered whether visitors to your MySpace profile come from? When you click on this little widget, a map is displayed that shows where recent visitors to your profile are geographically located. Simple, but cool.

Cooqy (http://www.cooqy.com/widgetWizard.html ) - Cooqy offers a Widget Wizard that allows you to create widgets that allow you to showcase your eBay auctions on your MySpace profile. It does cost money ($9.95 per month for up to 500 items) after the 30-day trial, though the Seller Showcase widget is free

Bubblesnaps (http://www.bubblesnaps.com ) - photo hosting web sites are a dime in a dozen, but what makes Bubblesnaps unique is that you add speech and thought balloons to your images, allowing you to inject a little humor or color into your photos. A very well-though-out interface makes this site very easy to use.
