What is exactly is a widget?

Have no idea what a widget is, how to use one or if I even need one.
Help please, I'm a tad bit stupid when it comes to the computer.

  • A widget is really anything that you can put on your homepage or your profile page.

    If you want to add a widget to your homepage (or your profile page - it works the same way), click the "Add A Widget" button that is underneath your profile picture on your homepage.
    You'll be brought to the "Widget Directory" which is a list of all of the widgets that CafeMom has right now (we'll be adding lots more). Pick the category that you are interested in, and then look through the different ones available in that category. Choose the one you want and click the "Learn More" button.
    Then you can read about the widget and see a sample of what it might look like. Click the "Add this widget" button if you are ready to start setting it up.
    For widgets that are from other sites, you will now go to a page that has directions about how to set the widget up.
