Also Hyves, the largest dutch community site supports OpenSocial - I would also love support for OpenSocial in Gwibber.

Orkut, the most important social network site in Brasil and one of the biggest in the world (with more than 100,000,000 registered users), also uses the OpenSocial APIs.

Fantastic idea! I would love for Gwibber to support this.

TylerJ (gotylergo) wrote :

MySpace was and still is one of the biggest social networks, but the plus of opensocial is that it wouldn't just add support for MySpace, but also any other site that uses OpenSocial.

Changed in gwibber:
status: New → Confirmed

I think custom account features is good, so user can add any society app to this great tool (GWIBBER), for now I need to add orkut account.

The "bug" report about LinkedIn not being supported in Gwibber has been marked as a duplicate of this one: without LinkedIn support as well as Twitter and Facebook support, Gwibber is essentially unusable. The Gwibber way of presenting is however way better than using which just seems to take acres of screen space.

i agree, seesmic is just yet another browser page ... the concept of gwibber is appealing .. i hope the status in ubuntu shows different colors for different alerts, like if it is a new message on twitter, it should show red, if it is a message on my chat, maybe green and so on ... but thats possibly ubuntu's enhancement. Currently whenever i see a color, i have to see if there is a new update .. and mostly i dont care about some updates :)

well done gwibber, keep updating and adding more.
