This project is no longer being maintained due to most social API's no requiring OAuth and some level of server-side authentication. The original intent of this project was solely browser-side JavaScript.

jquery-socialist - A jQuery social plugin for creating streams from social networks and feeds

Even if you hate socialism (as I do), you'll love this flexible jQuery social media plugin. jQuery Socialist is a plugin that lets you create a social stream or social wall from multiple social networks in one place. Use it to pull content from Facebook pages, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube and others.


- Display updates from multiple social networks in attractive visual layouts
- Supports Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest, RSS Feeds, Craigslist, Google+ and more..
- Multiple themes
- Easy to implement with just a few lines of code
