Version 2 of the TechNet Widget and MSDN Widget are live!

What are the TechNet and MSDN Widgets?   The Widgets pull the latest RSS feeds from TechNet and MSDN and offer selections from videos, webcasts, podcasts, TechNet/MSDN Magazines, and TechNet/MSDN Flash.  This allows website owners and bloggers to obtain the latest technology content immediately and automatically.

Widget features and highlights:

We’ve gathered and listened to feedback from the initial version of the Widget, and have incorporated into the second version of the Widget:

  • User can either embed the default Widget OR tailor their own Widget content (i.e. by keywords, form factors and product).
  • Possibility to manage Widget feeds via a self-service admin tool in the Widget.
  • Option to customize the Widget with a logo and custom size requirements, then easily incorporate on a blog page, website, or MySpace page (and more) with the embed code provided.
  • The Widget has built-in social networking capabilities and can be integrated on profile pages/blogs of sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Stumble Upon etc.
  • Stream video via RSS feed.
  • Widget supports localization
