What is a widget?

Widgets: They’re ways you can add content or things to your website that has been listed on My Community Directory + Diary. The good news is they don't take up much room and the hard work is done for you.

A widget is a stand-alone application that can be embedded into third-party sites by any user on a page where they have rights of authorship (e.g. a webpage, blog, or profile on a social media site).”

A common widget

Twitter widget / Facebook widget: A Twitter widget displays usually 3-5 of your most recent tweets, and also provides a link to your Twitter profile so people can easily follow you. The widget pulls information from your Twitter account and updates the feed to the widget in real-time.

So, why do you want to use widgets?
