Turn your social media profile into a word cloud with this tool

HTML5 Word Cloud

Word cloud created from my RSS feed

HMTL5 Word Cloud generates tag clouds by analyzing the most frequently used terms and phrases in Wikipedia articles, uploaded files, RSS feeds, and social media profiles (Facebook, Twitter, and Google+).

If the service reminds you of Wordle, you are absolutely right. However, I find HTML5 Word Cloud easier to use. For example, no need to take screenshots of your creations if you want if you want to keep copies on your computer. Just click the “Save” button at the top right, and you are set.

Word clouds can be fully edited. All you have to do is play with the buttons for shapes and themes. You can also enlarge, shrink, disperse, and gather up the words on the page.

When you are satisfied with your masterpiece, click the “Share” button. Enter a title and description in the pop-up box, and select the social network(s) where you want your friends to see it.

Here is an example of what the tag cloud for my Google+ profile looks like:
