As every evening I was just surfing the web when a friend gave me an nice url through Live Messenger. When I asked him what it was he told me that it was a nice new Microsoft online tool.

You guys (and girls) really should check it out! I see you thinking : What is he talking about? PopFly…WTF is PopFly?

Just read and then just go and try it :

Popfly is the fun and easy way to build and share mashups, gadgets, and Web pages. It?s made up of online visual tools for building Web pages and mashups and a social network where you can host, share, rate, comment and even remix creations from other Popfly users.

Here are some things you can do with Popfly:

  • Add some fun to your Facebook page, web site, or Windows Live Spaces page. You can easily spice up your Web site or blog with Popfly by adding customized games like Whack-a-mole or asteroids with pictures of your friends and family or create custom quizzes or polls that you can easily embed on your Web site.
  • Build a home page. You can build a custom home page, say for your school?s sports team and choose from over 150 different themes, 10 styles, and 30 unique color themes for a unique visual design. You can then easily add things like team photos, a team schedule from an RSS feed, video from previous games, Virtual Earth maps with directions to game locations and more, all without writing code.
  • Mix and re-mix photos and videos. Popfly makes it easy to create and share beautiful slideshows using pictures from Flickr, Windows Live Spaces, Facebook or to embed a podcast or a video player hosting videos from Soapbox or YouTube and share it on your Facebook profile, Windows Live Spaces page, or any Web page.
  • Unify your online personality. Popfly enables you to customize and stitch together your online persona in one place. You can create mashups that show what you dug on Digg.com, what you are buying or selling on eBay, you Halo 3 game scores, what Facebook events you?re attending, what your friends are doing on Twitter, and much more.
    In addition, Popfly offers a powerful web programming environment and social network so you can bring in new data sources, create new ways to display information, or even create and share full Visual Studio projects.
