On the left column, we have the Social Dashboard. On the center we have the normal activity of the network and also The Wire. On the right column we have the SW Social Translator, Group Membership, and Blogs:

I know that many of you out there are big fans of Google Plus but let's face it: Google Plus is dead. 
Now, what went wrong with it?
Opening you email and your Google plus Profile
Well, it is pretty simple, they tried so hard to tie all google services into Google Plus. I know it sounds like a wonderful idea, but it is not so wonderful. For example, in my case I have two Gmail accounts: One for business and the other one is for my job. I opened my Google Plus account with my email for... Read full post

Ya ha pasado bastante tiempo desde que Milocker fue fundado y establecido. Ha sobrevivido durante mucho tiempo debido a nuestra dedicacion y aporte. Pero cual es el futuro de Milocker?

Uno de nuestros fundadores ha sugerido una de las mas grandes ideas que he oido, la cual es ser un lugar de soporte elgg pero en castellano. La idea es magnifica y pues no hemos vuelto a hablar de eso pero la idea sigue ahi y creo que se deberia llevar a cabo.

What's there for elgg? Elgg is a social networking platform that has been around for some time. It is the best because is free and it has several features that you need in a social network. However for me elgg doesn't have a bright future.

Facebook,, Twitter, etc have pretty awesome home pages. Twitter homepage layout is different from the inside layout. Some elgg developers keep telling us that we don't make an effort making themes. However we do, we choose colors, layouts that we... Read full post

So, we are running an elgg venture called SW Social Shop, which is an elgg store. We are currently working on a study case, so that our elgg friends can benefit from it.
