The other day I came across a link for an artist page on the Foxytunes Planet beta site. I made my way to the Jack Johnson page and on there was able to find videos, photos, song lyrics, similar artists, merchandise links, and more. Doesn’t sound very unique except that all of this isÂ aggregated information across services like Flickr, YouTube, last.fm, Yahoo, Amazon, and a few others.
EverythingÂ is provided on a single page that hasÂ the ability to page through the service blocks all the while keeping you on the same page. The method used by Foxytunes is similar to oneÂ I wrote about back in February of last yearÂ titled creating a Lifestream using Pageflakes. This same method can also be used on Netvibes as I’ve seen used in their Universes.
It’s nice to seeÂ unique implementations of social services aggregation. I’m glad that itÂ continues to break into the mainstream. I’m looking forward to seeing more uniqueÂ uses in the future across many other areas.
