Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day…

This Week In Web 2.0

| 0 comments

In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth sharing, I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” It’ll be a short compilation of new decent sites that are worth noting, but maybe not necessarily worth a separate post and generally — though not always — not worthy of being on a “The Best…” list (let me know if you think I’m wrong in my assessment, though):

Pixt lets you create a “virtual bulletin board” for free. It’s easy to use, though I’m not adding it to
The Best Online Virtual “Corkboards” (or “Bulletin Boards”) because I think the sites there are even easier and more suitable for many other tasks — Pixt is primarily designed just to share photos and videos. Thanks to the BookChook for the tip.

Mighty Bell lets you create a private or public “social network” where people can publish posts, images, conversations, etc. It looks like a nice possibility if you’d want to create a private place for students to share. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Social Network Sites. Thanks to TechCrunch for the tip.

Flipter lets you create embeddable online surveys. It’s primary advantage is that it’s supposed to let you easily add different forms of media to them. However, no matter how hard I tried, and I tried multiple times, every time I tried to add images and save them, I’d get an error message. Once they work out their technical snafus, this might be a candidate for inclusion in The Best Sites For Creating Online Polls & Surveys.
