According to the Squarespace official blog, users can now head for the clouds, specifically the tag cloud. On the lines of a popular web publishing platform, WordPress, Squarespace has launched its tag cloud widget. This will allow Squarespace users to display popular tags on their website in a text-based graphical format. The bigger the font size of a tag in the cloud, the more popular it will be on the website.
