I am invariably behind the curve, but, eventually, I do manage to catch up.
In the left toolbar, you currently should be able to find a Facebook Social Plugin, a Google Friend Connect, and a Twitter stream for this webpage, down under the “Social” category – feel free to do with those whatever it is one does. (For some reason, the Google Friend Connect thing is having a devil of a time working… I am working on fixing it, but if you have suggestions, feel free to sound off.)
On the other hand – literally – in the right toolbar, you can find a listing of the most talkative folks at this webpage (the numbers are counted after this page’s transition to WordPress, due to all of the old MovableType trackbacks showing up as comments, and thus dominating the scene). Hey, people like competition, right?
Additionally, all posts should have a Facebook “Like” button now – I think it works, but I honestly have no idea. I did end up removing the Sociable buttons, and the Related Posts links, simply because it appeared as though no one ever used either, and they were just lagging load times.
[Update] The Google Friend Connect Gadget should now be working. Please let me know if it is not. [/Update]
