Hello. I am being asked to add Twitter feeds, Facebook stuff and other widgets that others like DotNetNuke, WordPress or Joomla have. Is there such a repository for SharePoint 2010?

Thank you in advance.

    With Twitter, you could do the above or use a Content Editor Web Part and insert the HTML from one of Twitter's Widgets:

    Facebook also provide Badges (like Twitter's Widgets). You could copy the source into a Content Editor Web Part in SharePoint 2010:
