mypictr – we make your profile picture

While adding my blog on some blog directory yesterday, I “bumped” on a nice web tool that helps you to create profile picture for web social networks. It is many a times a harassing task to get pictures in an acceptable format for each of the social networks website you are registered too. Some need avatars size, some portrait size and others custom size. With the help of this small web tool, you can in a flash create the picture either save it on your PC or send it to an email address. Here are some screen shots of the site: http://mypictr.com/

Discovering Wallop

Let’s go again on some social network website that i got invitation from πŸ™‚ thanks jessica. The site is called Wallop and it’s still in beta… a completely refasionned style of social network in flash…

Lets get throught some screen caps first and then talk a bit about it…

This is the main screen of Wallop, that displays your user profile and tools for navigation on the website

My Music… Nice feature… you can upload your MP3 and listen to them…. online… also people in your network can listen to them.

My Blog… get your post directly on your wallop simple and easy just put the link of your feed and your good to go…

My Conversation… Very strange stuff… it’s kind of monitor everything you do… when i post photo comments or make a post on my blog they just add up to the conversation… the reason behind that… still unknown.

My Network… Interesting… you can have range of people that you can place near of further away from you depending on the relation they have with you… nicely though… πŸ™‚

My Picture… As usual the normal image gallery that let you upload your photo and display them either on your main screen or put them as background…

Seems quiet interesting but, it’s a closed network so only people using Wallop can see you… πŸ™

There is also Mods that i did not mention… they are like plugins that you can integrate to your page… but we’ll discuss about that when i get to know it a bit more.

Created a ziki account today

The name ziki seems strangely attracted toward that of wiki, but this not the case…

Definition of wiki

What is wiki ?

A wiki — pronounced WICK-ee or WEE-kee — is a web site that makes it simple for anyone to create and share web pages, images, and much more in an instant. If you can browse, you can wiki!

Invented by Ward Cunningham and named after the Hawaiian word for quick, wikis are the quickest way for you, your team, or your community to establish a unique online presence.

now we know they are not at all related. πŸ™‚

lets get back to the ziki account that i created which can be seen here. Its a social network based on tags same concept as technorati tags. But creating a link for people with same tags, kind of weird searching for people with the same tags… i tried sleep and it resulted with only 2 people tagged as sleep, so i am wondering is there only 2 people on this entire site that like to sleep… anyway lets not get away from the main subject.

There is one cool stuff that i can see on this website, the promotion of your ziki profile… it is mentioned on the site that they can buy paid advertisement on google, yahoo, msn for your ziki profile for not more than $10. seems pretty much awsome to me πŸ™‚ getting free paid advertising on the web. so i am wondering how this is going to work up… i’ll keep this post updated about how this goes. till then you can just take a look at ziki.

So like i said they really buy sponsored link for your name πŸ™‚ thats cool here is the google search result.
