Today the widget-Wonkas over at JS-Kit debuted Navigator, a web service that "distills" community opinion and user behavior (TWO DIFFERENT THINGS!) into a set of moderate-able and actionable site content views.
This yields two separate benefits:
* Site managers can alter the service's look and feel based on two different forms of data (what users say they want, and what they actually do)
* Regular visitors get quick access to content attuned to their personal preferences (whether they know it or not)The Navigator boasts:
* Editor's Picks, where users can also add or remove views, or build custom views
* Hot-links to most active objects (by views or time)
* "Top," which provides access to the most popular items (weighted average)
* Grab It," which "viralizes" site content, enabling users to widgetize things they like and post it elsewhere
The hoped-for result is a decrease in bounce rates and an increase in page views. The company also promises it'll be easy to deploy, and it's browser-agnostic.
Goody gumdrops. Now wipe your chin and jump in here.
