Google Mapplet

[update: this is now included in the Google Mapplet directory 🙂 which is here ]

If you’re a fan of Google maps, you may know that Google recently added the ability to include ‘Mapplets’ on your personal map page.

Basically these allow you to include other content that you may find useful, such as traffic, weather, real estate and – of course – nightlife!

We’ve created our own Thursday Club mapplet, which you can include on your own maps. If you can’t find it in the Google directory of mapplets, you can add it by entering the URL on the ‘add content’ page. The address is:

http://www.thursdayclub.com/city/tc_mapplet.xml

Right now the number of cities and venues is limited to a selection from the main Thursday Club site, but we’ll be adding more shortly, so you should see the list grow as you use it.

We hope you find this useful – especially when travelling or stuck in a strange land somewhere 😉

Thursday Club..

Twitter, Facebook, Myspace etc …..

Hello,

Just to let you know that the members section now allows you to associate your profile with various other sites such as LinkedIn, Digg, Facebook, Yahoo!, Twitter etc (currently 10 sites).

So, if you’re keeping multiple personalities on multiple sites, you can link to them from your member homepage. You can also choose to show links to just your TC friends.

Working on tighter integration through the site APIs, but if you use Twitter, give it a whirl as that will automatically show your picture and current status message on your member page. Look out for the ‘networks’ tab.

You can see an example of this in action here

Did we miss any major networks? (netscape ..?)
