What is a Widget?
Widgets are small, stand alone chunks of coding that can be embedded into third party sites (such as a blog, website or social media page) to perform a specific function. Other names for widgets include: gadget, portlet, module, webjit and capsule, but in the age of smartphones, they are more commonly known as apps.
In some form or another, widgets have been around since the Internet was first developed. Those first widgets were very basic in nature, performing simple functions such as page view counters and advertising banners. With the rise of blogging and social media, the development and use of widgets has exploded.
