yourminis is a start page that you can make public, infact you share them in a type of social network.
PageFlakes and ProtoPage also have sharing, but yourminis has really taken it on by building a community. Every public startpage has ratings, comments, recent visitors, a category, and tags (eg. find other startpages with the same tag). Basically a social network type environment for startpages (
but you can’t add friends or other start pages).
Infact, you can make lots of minis, whereas in the other two mentioned startpages, you can only have tabs within the one startpage.
You can even use these widgets outside of yourminis, perhaps in your blog.
Public RSS Readers like Blogdigger Groups, SuprGlu, MySyndicaat, Feedpile, KickRSS, Technorati Favourites, Top 10 Sources, FeedRaider, Speedyfeed, Bozpages, Kinja, Feed Collectors, etc…are great to make topic news streams, then you have Topic Content Networks like Squidoo, Hubpages, webjam, Fanpop, Zimbio, Boxxet, etc…that can have topic news streams as well as other modules, now you have Public startpages that can also create topic pages, but in a widget layout (and in yourminis case, almost a social network).
The widget option goes beyond just RSS widget streams, you can have a widget for anything, unlike the Topic Content Networks you are given default modules, but with yourminis the sky is the limit with widgets, you can get widgets for anything.
Zimbio may be similar as all the modules can be displayed as widgets on a startpage (but as mentioned it is limited to each module being a widget, you can’t add external widgets and the system doesn’t have its own widget gallery).
Webjam may be even more similar, this is a community of public startpages (you can even clone them)…not sure if they have an extensive widget gallery. Like youminis you can make lots of webjams.
See more about yourminis at Robin’s master post.
While we are on the subject topic pages, Boxxet (a Topic Content Network) has officially released, I posted on this before but didn’t realise they were automated topic pages, just like a Public RSS Reader can be an automated topic radar.
It seems that Public RSS Readers (RSS Radars), Topic Content Networks, and Startpage Networks are starting to blur the line…newsmastering has come a long way since BlogDigger Groups.
