Social network widgets


Itzknotty is a small application that brings several widgets with it to display your tweets from twitter or posts from your facebook pages / groups:

  • A widget to display the latest posts of a configured facebook page
  • A widget to display the latest live stream of a configured facebook page. The livestream widget will only be displayed if there are users viewing the stream at the moment.
  • A widget to display the tweets of a configured twitter page

There is also a page...

  • ...that shows the complete activity stream of the configured facebook page. The user can click on a button to load the next activity items from the facebook page.
