Top Social Network Promotion on Web Site

I was setting up a demonstration event web site to show how events can become more social. I setup new accounts for the event at Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Facebook has their Fanbox tool that easily allows you to build a widget or badge to showcase your Facebook page on your web site.

Twitter has their profile widget that quickly puts your Twitter stream on your web site.
