Added Facebook Social plugins, kindly comment... #1
I have updated my company website http://swayamsat.org to xoops 2.5 and added the facebook social plugins eg. comments (on blog, workshops, piCal & tadgallery modules), like box, recent activity to this website. Also made minor changes to its design.

Kindly review the website and let me know if there is anything that I can do to improve its look and feel or user friendliness.

Your site looks really good. The only thing that I would change is that I wouldn't have your social media icons half concealed 3/4 of the way down the page. I wouldn't bother with having them pop up when you put your cursor over then I would just leave them static. Good site.


Those are actually part of the theme.. I have them on one of my sites as well although I will likely be building a new theme from the ground up soon.

It looks good. I like the design and color combination. But something is missing with drop menus. Yet when see it for the first time it gives friendly look. But I do not understand why, why now a days every website must have a section wiht "Join us in facebook" If there weren't facebook? Too much hysteria on this social website. More and more people are getting annoyed about this because, where ever they are it's always now is facebook.
