Okay, if you haven’t done it already, you’ll just need to join facebook. Yes, it used to be just for undergrads gawking over the new incoming freshmen class (okay it probably still is), but over the past year it has expanded into something more powerful…for everyone of all ages. It’s a much more powerful site than myspace or friendster has ever been.
One of the cool things you can do is add “widgets” to your page. And what is a widget? It’s a self-contained application that you can add with the click of a mouse that acts almost like a desktop application and can be moved around mostly anywhere on your profile page. These widgets help someone decorate/personalize and add functionality to their profile page.
At this point there are thousands of widgets, but over the course of this week starting with #5 and counting down, I’m going to post my top 5 “Penn” related widgets you should add to your profile (if you haven’t already). These widgets either have something to do with Penn or were built by Penn undergrads/alumni.

#5) “Penn Quakers” Widget
Think you’re a diehard Quakers fan? Show off what you know by making game predictions for the 2007-08 Men’s Basketball season. This widget was developed by David Lei (C’10) and is brought to you by The Daily Pennsylvanian.
Check back tomorrow for my #4 pick.
