Nowadays, people want to get involved with websites, if only to boost their online image. If you’re a blog owner and you want to get more from your readers, it can be a good idea to allow them to submit their own posts.

Kapost allows you to do just that and although your submissions are hosted with them, you can seamlessly integrate them into your blog to suit your requirements.

For many the poor handling of people’s privacy has caused many to see alternatives (see our 6 Alternatives to Facebook). Currently, however, no other social network stacks up to Facebook, which is a network many won’t leave simply due to the number of family or friends that have finally joined the social networking world.

Recently Facebook held several meetings regarding privacy concerns, finally admitting they had gone too far. They’re now in the process of rolling out new privacy features to simplify the overwhelmingly complex system previously used.
