Free Twitter Avatar Hack

No Comment - Post a comment

Some think it is very important what we do with our online profiles and how do we present ourselves to do wider audience. It doesn't matter what service we are talking about every one of social services has profile page where you can write short bio, put link to your blog or email and upload your photo or avatar. There are differences between services, but basic options are often similar.

Whenever you can, change default profile image, specially if you use Twitter and you want to build bigger network of followers, because default image tells about yourself more than you think in negative way.

If you don't want to upload your own photo, for some reason, you can create avatar, graphic representation of yourself using some of free avatar generator services. One of those is Face Your Manga, Flash based application where you can make thousands unique combinations by choosing sex, hair style, color, face lines, face parts, clothes and many others.

They require some data from you like email address, age, name if you want to download your avatar. But you can easily hack this service if you don't like unwanted spam or just you can't be bothered. When you finish creating your avatar, just press PrintScreen keyboard key (Windows users), open your favorite (open source) graphic editor and paste your creation. Small hack to make life easier.

When you finish updating your Twitter profile, feel free to add me as a friend, I want to see what kind of avatar you have created.

Free Promotion Web Service

2 comments - Post a comment

If you are designer and icon creator you probably already know some ways how to promote your work online. One of the ways to get your work in front of wider audience is to use free web services available out there like Free Icons Download. You will have to accept some terms: adult related or low quality icons will not be approved, so be sure your work is valuable, upload only icons, logos, prints, software and web UI resources and you have to be original author of the content, don't cheat.

Best solution is to submit small subset of your icons collection. You will have to accept one of 3 licenses, free for personal and non-commercial use, free for public non-commercial use or creative commons attribution 3.0 license.

Here is one example, Halloween Vista Icons set created by iconshock.

Due to recent EC changes, since it is not allowed to send more than 1.000 credits, our second prize will change to 1.000 credits. We have 25 participants this month who qualified with active email subscription.

Randomly chosen Winners are:

1. rumio_4ever [at] hotmail [dot] com - 6 months free homepage ad spot
2. Tomcat1228 [at] msn [dot] com - 1.000 free EntreCard credits

Congrats to Winners, others more luck next month!
rumio_4ever should provide link and desired anchor text.

Participants are counted by email which means if someone subscribe with two different email addresses and confirm both of them, he has two tickets and more chances to win. I'm considering more prizes and if you have any suggestions feel free to comment about it.

Changes for November Edition: until now you could have one ticket if you subscribe and confirm email subscription. From now, you have a chance to get one more ticket for monthly contest if you write about Webomatik on your blog. Post about contest or write blog review with at least one link back to home page which will bring you another ticket and double your chances to win. Posts are good for one month, leave comment with your link. Don't forget, you are participant every month, it doesn't matter if you already won a prize.

Webomatik's main focus is web2.0, interesting web services and if those are free to use even better! You will not see any ads on this blog (at least not before 2010) and everything written here is original content from a pen of single web technologies enthusiast. You can make a connection with me at StumbleUpon, Digg, Twitter, BlogCatalog or Technorati. I'm trying to be as active as possible.

Recently I found small but interesting web service, Ajax loader icon generator. You can choose from over 35 indicator types, set background and foreground color and download your GIF file. Simple but useful.

Africa 2.0

1 comments - Post a comment

Africa is second largest continent in the world by population, but yet only 5.3% of Africans use Internet. On the other hand, Africa has one of the largest usage growth 2000-2008 of over 1.000% and today there are over 50M Internet users in Africa.

Web2.0 wave in Africa is also strong as anywhere in the world and in this case borders or oceans doesn't make a difference.

free blogging web service logo

Posterous is free blogging platform. This will be the end of the story if Posterous doesn't have many more amazing features.

Main thing here is you post via e-mail. No need for robust web blog editors, just pack your e-mail and you are ready to go. You can include jpg, gif and png images, doc, ppt and pdf files, mp3 music or even avi and mpg video files. They will take care of the content. If you send more photos, they will convert them to nice photo gallery! Links are auto-converted, but not only that: write YouTube link and result is video it links to. Besides YouTube you can use Google Video, Hulu, Vimeo, GodTube and many more.

Best of all, when you post on Posterous, they will instantly autopost on Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Blogger, WordPress, TypePad,... if you add your accounts. This feature is really the next level of blogging (one service to rule them all)! Is this everything? Not at all! Posterous is still work in progress and new features will be added, including API. Don't forget it has a social dimension too, because you can subscribe to other people's profiles and they can also follow you. Posterous gives you 1Gb of free space and pages are ads free.

This blogging web service is great solution for dial-up Internet users around the world. They don't have to be online while compiling the post, thus connection time is reduced and costs are lower. Off course in this case text and smaller images are preferred content.

Already got an account with Posterous? Share it with Webomatik along with your experience.
