Unit 7 - Using External Data Sources Proposal


Proposal One – Social Media Feeds

I plan to implement a few external site features to mash up into my site. I am unsure how this will go, but so far implementations have been easier than I have anticipated which had made me happy and surprised me at the same time. One of the items missing on my page is my wellness diary, so I am going to implement that section, though it will be low on content. I plan to implement feeds on my social media on this wellness diary so people can get to know me a bit better.  This will also satisfy all of the content I had committed to in my original site plan, as I have been releasing a little with further updates and submissions. I am not 100% sure how this is going to work, yet, but I am looking forward to the challenge.

Proposal Two – Facebook Comment Integration

I am looking forward to implementing Facebook's comment system into my website. This will allow users to be more engaged and comment on trails after they complete them, especially if they used a review on our site to do a trail or not. This has the potential for additional promotion through other users.
