Wednesday, August 3, 2011

පෙර ලිපියෙන් අපි සාකච්චා කලේ "globalisation" යනුවෙන් දැක්වෙන අදහස අපි කෙතරම් වැරදි ලෙසට තේරුම් ගෙන තිබේද යන්නය. "globalisation" යන්න තාක්ෂණයේ (විශේෂයෙන්ම තොරතුරු තාක්ෂණයේ) දියුණුව තම යටත් විජිත වාදයේ දෙවැනි පියවර ලෙස යොදාගැනීමක් ලෙසත් සමහර ආර්ථික ශාශ්‍රත්නයන් විග්‍රහ කරනවා. කෙසේ වුවද "globalisation" යන සංසිද්දිය අද වෙන විට බටහිර ජාතීන්ට දෙපැත්ත කැපෙන ආයුදයක් වී තිබෙන බවත් දැන් දැන් පෙනෙනවා.

Therefore you may better off integrating twitter to web resources like your web site or Face book profile.Twitter has provided standard widgets to share your tweets in your web site or blog. Firstly it looks very common due to wide usage. Secondly, the standard twitter widget may be too big for your web page.

The code that you put up as content is interpreted by the web server / browser rather than published as content for the user.
