Social actions toolset

Use these tools on your site to promote relevant social actions

In the spring of 2009, our friends at Social Actions held a Change the Web Challenge and handed out $10,000 in awards to public-spirited organizations. The only requirements were that participants must release the code under an open source license and make use of the Social Actions API, which makes it easy to surface social cause opportunities. (Here’s what an API is.)

Following is a collection of the widgets, plug-ins, extensions, Web & mobile applications, mashups and tools that draw on the Social Actions API, making it easy for you or your organization to incorporate these tools into your own site:
