The Connector is a widget which enables a user to enter any name in the search bar and see who he/she is connected to. [screen 1]
This is still an idea. If you would be interested in building this, let us know.
Clicking on the “?ʼ next to each connection, opens a window, displaying the connection between the two people. The information in this window reads as follows:
-”X” and “X” were both mentioned in:- Sliding excerpt -Source attribution
Both names are links back to corresponding topic pages.Article headline links to corresponding news source.Source attribution links to the home page of the source
By double clicking any “connected person”, the display replaces this person in the center image, and a new set of connected persons reveals itself. Bottom window doubles as promo copy to encourage grab, and will also display two text ads when served offsite to userʼs page/site. Adequate room is needed to display both.Overall design aesthetic is to be clean and simple, not overly stylized. Itʼs intention is not to work both on Daylife.com, as well as on anyone elseʼs site, and thus not compete or challenge their existing site look/feel. Title bar displays name “The Connectorʼ, and Daylife co-branding in right corner
