Stickam Contacts Prototype Completed…

We have completed the Stickam Contacts prototype widget and service. The prototype demonstrates some of the capabilities and features that are planned for the product. Once we clean up and organize the code, we will release a functional demo in the next couple of days. At release, the demo will be a standalone contacts list where you can add/remove Stickam users. The status of each Stickam user is updated without the need for a page refresh. Clicking on the associated status icons will launch the user’s Stickam player for video chat, the chat room that the user is in or the user’s profile page. You can also view a user’s profile by clicking on their name.

This is a prototype demo and intended for gathering user feedback so we have not designed the widget for any specific start page site or system. However, the Contacts widget will work on any site, page or system that allows you to display a web page such as Bubbles, Pageflakes (by setting Stickam Contacts as the Web Page Flake homepage) or iframe enabled page/blog.

    Cool, I see that it works on Pageflakes. It’s my personal favorite. How can I use your widget on Pageflakes?

    We will be releasing the prototype/demo in the next day or two. It will be a functional demo so you can use it at that time. However, since it is only a demo there will be some limitations.

    The announcement will include instructions on using the Stickam Contacts widget on Pageflakes.

    The preview demo has been released and can be used as is. It is fully functional with its current feature set.

    What you mean by shared mode?

    As it stands right now, you can put Stickam Contacts on any page and be “used” by any one. So, the widget/contacts itself is shareable. However, each person will get their own registration, login and contacts list. The contact lists are not shared.

    We will be evaluating and possibly implementing an option to share “your” contacts list rather than allowing page visitors to create their own contacts list.
