  • Hi silver1diamond,

    A widget is really anything that you can put on your homepage or your profile page. So you could have a widget that shows your journal posts, or your friends, or the groups you belong to. Other widgets include your chatterbox and shortcuts boxes.

  • A widget is just a user friendly way to add things to your page. It used to be that you had to know HTML or some other programming language to get anything to show up on your webpages. Widgets give you the content you want and all you have to do plug in code that is provided for you.
