Filed under
KDE

A widget has been included in KDE 4.3 as the first implementation of the „Social Desktop“ which allows the user to view other KDE users in his or her city or region.

The widget must be activated by the user, as it is not merely available by default on the desktop. After activation, the widget shows othe KDE users in the region who have also activated and are using this widget. When other users are marked as “friends”, they are permanently marked as such in the Friend-Plasmoid which displays whether friends are online at the time or not.
