Anyone who’s been paying attention has seen the dearth of writing going on here lately. I’ve been experimenting with lifestream focused themes that let me feed the beast that is this blog in an automated, sound bite fashion using feeds from the various services I use on a regular basis; Last.fm, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Netflix, YouTube, etc..
And the lifestream is precisely where Flavors.me excels. As they describe themselves, “Flavors.me allows anyone to create an elegant website using personal content from around the internet.”
The service very simply and elegantly does what it sets out to do — creating a portal to your presence on various social networks. You can upload a background, tweak the colors and fonts and configure which services you want to connect to and share. There’s no direct interactivity, but in my view, that’s a good thing. If someone wants to comment on your Flickr photostream or retweet that clever quote, they can click through to the source service and do it there.
The best way to “get” Flavors.me is to poke around and try it, but if you’re timid about sharing, Flavors.me creator Jack Zerby has posted a terrific video overview.
