Social Actions' Change the Web Challenge wraps up in 2 days and they've received 21 apps to date. Change the Web is a competition to create innovative tools that help people find and share opportunities to take action on the websites, blogs, and social networks they visit each day.
Web developers who enter the Change the Web Challenge have a chance to win a share of $10,000 by building web applications that draw on Social Actions' open database of 60,000+ actions people can take across a range of issues.
Here are a couple examples of some of the cool stuff that has been submitted to date:
- Take Action button - Enables your readers to make a diffence on your website
- CauseSense - Replaces Google Adsense style ads with related social actions
- Twitter Trends - Matches the latest Twitter trends with ways to take social action
So if you've got an idea for a web app or widget percolating in your head that can "change the web", get to work fast. Participants continue to share their ideas over at the Idea Hub - so if you won't have time to submit your our app, at least head over there and cast your vote(s) for your favorite one.
