Joy.ly – Adding Emoticons To Your Tweets

  • December 20, 2010

Joy.lyOne can look askance at these sites that let you send longer tweets, if only because they are degenerating the basic concept. If what you are sharing is not a micro message, then you are not tweeting. Any person who claims otherwise needs to revise his ideas a little.

This site, now, is one that actually stands as a true Twitter enhancer. Using it, you will be able to add emoticons to your tweets. If you are feeling happy, sad, confused, blitzed… now you will be allowed to have the corresponding face added to your message.

And now that I have used this site, it dawns on me that the lack of an official solution for doing this is more than disconcerting. I mean, emoticons make for saving even more space when one is typing a message down. By that reckoning, they should have bceome part of the tweeting experience a long time ago. They are germane to the concept of saying more using less space that characterizes Twitter. Well, it seems the wait is over now.

ScreamAtTheWorld.com – Get Passionate Online

  • April 20, 2010

ScreamAtTheWorld.comI think we all can tell a similar story: more than a couple of times per day we feel like proclaiming something to the four winds. Such a need is born out of joy, out of boredom, out of the will to exact revenge… it all depends, but the need to communicate emotions in a truly passionate way is part of our daily lives.

And this site has been devised with the aim of letting us all voice these feelings. Because nine out of ten times, they come to us in contexts that make it impossible for us to actually express what we feel.

Well, the WWW is always safer and less notorious. Scream At The Wolrd maximizes that, and you not only get to post whatever you want, you have the chance to pick a color to go with the text along with the actual style of the font. That is quite interesting, actually, and something that I can see services like Twitter embracing some day – posts with a higher emotional charge.

I don’t have to tell you that the site is free to join and use. So, next time you are bursting with emotions and feel like letting it all out at head straight to this site and start typing away.

Cuesense.com – Turn Opinions & Emotions Into Slideshows

  • February 8, 2010

Cuesense.comCuesense is a service that will let anybody scour both Twitter and the Blogosphere in pursuit of opinions or testimonials that relate that the service he or she provides. These can then be turned into a slideshow, and embedded on the site or blog so as to show potential customers where it’s at.

Each presentation comes complete with photos and a soundtrack that the one assembling it (EG, you) deems as suitable. Something like “We Are The Champions” or “Standing On Top Of The World” should do the trick.

Although I mentioned Twitter and blogs in the first paragraph, the system actually imports opinions and feelings from other sources like Friendfeed and news feeds on the whole. And when it comes to Twitter, Cuesense also looks at the statuses of users in order to assess the sentiment on the web. In each and every case, 11 different emotional dimensions are recognized, and these cover the gamut of human emotions from top to bottom. It is fair to say, then, that the impact of each and every site or product will be transposed accurately enough by this system.

Emotify.com – Emotions & The Internet

  • January 25, 2010

Emotify.comEmotify is a new service whose aim is to come up with an emotional snapshot of the WWW. What does that mean? It allows users to submit and vote on content of every type such as videos, photos, blog entries and articles by emotion.

These include “Funny”, “Sad”, “Shocking”, “Upsetting”, “Frightening”… you get the idea. These emotions are then aggregated, and an emotional overview of the Internet is thus generated.

Note that you are not restricted to just the provided emotions. That is, if the way that a site makes you feel is not already supported you can have it added just by creating it yourself. You will also be able to share it, of course, but whether it catches on that remains a different story.

Additionally, Emotify doubles as a platform for the creation of media packages called EmotiPacks. These are collections of content put together by any user whose aim is to transmit a particular emotion from his vantage point. So, if you want to tell others why you are walking on sunshine you can do so. And you can also let them know if you really feel down and out. Maybe someone will lend a hand.

Emote.in – Microblog The Way You Are Feeling

  • November 16, 2009

Emote.inA system like Twitter accommodates many uses. Conveying the way you feel at any given time is obviously one of them, but if for this or the other reason you want to share your feelings in a setting which is solely devoted to that, this new site will let you do it.

Initially, it is a microsharing site where you can let others know about what is going through your heart and head right on the spot. These updates go by the names of “Dots”, and they are not that dissimilar to tweets. One of the differences is that they can be accompanied by emoticons to illustrate how you feel.

When it comes to the way that information is displayed, a vertical notice list is employed, much like the one that is used on other microblogging sites. It is coupled with a scrolling timeline that displays a user’s lifestream on a horizontal canvas and provides the chance to go back in time, connecting the past and the present seamlessly. In this way, the site becomes something akin to a personal diary that anybody can read and ponder upon.

This website aims to provide the missing link in the way people communicate and connect online. Can it make it or not? Pay it a visit at the provided address and arrive at your own conclusions.

Emotionr.com – Tell The World How You Feel

  • September 2, 2009

Emotionr.comPresented by Zallas (a Chicago-based software development company), emotionr is a brand new service that enables those who use it to chronicle the way that they are feeling over time. This is accomplished by recording, tracking and sharing their feelings with the rest of the world.

As regards the actual mechanics of the site, users rate their emotions by way of a sliding scale that goes from 1 to 10. Every member of the site simply matches his mood to an emotion icon that changes expression as the cursor is slid. In addition to that, a mini description can be provided in order for the user to tell everybody why he feels over the moon, or why he could use a shoulder.

One of the best things about the site is that right after saving an emotion, the user can view other people all around the globe who are feeling exactly alike. In this way, if you want to celebrate life with others you can do it easily, and if you want to wallow in misery you will be able to do it as well. To each his own, I guess.

Cymbolism.com – Linking Words, Colors, Mood, and Design

  • July 31, 2008

Cymbolism.comCymbolism is a funky, insightful online tool that links colors, emotions, and design. Colors compliment feelings that are derived from words.

Designers can take advantage of this effect by jumping onto the Cymbolism site and finding out which colors convey the emotions that they desire certain words to have. Users log on and cast their votes on color-word associations by selecting a specific color when they are provided with a word and its description. These votes are saved, and over time, users’ opinions and moods are quantified, hence providing designers with definite statistics on word-mood-color associations. These statistics can then be used in various design concepts.

1-love-quotes.com – Find Your Perfect Love Quote

  • May 2, 2008

1-love-quotes.comThe name of the website is a bit self-explanatory, but when I actually entered the site, I was blown away. “Love Quotes” has a lot more meanings than I imagined.

From kissing, to friendship, to pleasure (just to name a few), 1-love-quotes.com is an enormous resource to find the perfect love or emotion related quote that states your inner feelings. The search box at the top of the page allows you to search more specific quotes; but I truly recommend browsing through all the categories. You will be able to vote for your favourite quote, as well as going through all types of quotes (some cliché, some very original) posted by users or that were said by actors, comedians, philosophers, writers, and more. Don’t get deceived by the website’s name, though: 1-love-quotes.com features a whole lot of quotes regarding subjects that are not love, like emotions, God, risk, sacrifice, temptation, pride, and much more. 1-love-quotes.com

Postsecret.Blogspot.com – Share Your Secrets

  • March 17, 2008

Postsecret.Blogspot.comWhat’s your secret? I’m not talking about your tactics or business strategy, but that kind of rather insignificant piece of information that can change for ever the way the world sees you, that kind of information no one would care to confess because it’s too embarrassing, but one still keeps private. For instance, if you knew that the home coming queen doesn’t feel pretty if she’s not wearing makeup, or your awfully friendly neighbour hates receiving people in their home, or that very confident people you know cut off the tags from their clothes to avoid other people knowing what size of clothes they wear, you’d certainly feel different about them, and now the have the chance to try it, because that’s the kind of secrets that this collaborative blog collects.

The idea is that people snail mail their secrets in a home made postcard, which gets posted in the site for one week (Sunday thru Saturday), and then gets erased for good, so that the words we say don’t make us prisoners. Mind that lots of the content available from this site is quite hard to deal with, not in terms of adult/non adult content, but just because you get to be a spectator of the grief and unconfessable truths, fears, regrets and rarities of the world one is not used to deal with. Postsecret.Blogspot.com also hosts video secrets, and has a Spanish version where the captions in the postcards are translated. Postsecret.Blogspot.com
