short for: social applet

A "sapplet" is a social applet that is designed to overlay on Facebook pages or other social networking sites.

For example, sapplets like Buddy Media’s Interactive “Personality” Boutique, which recommends products based on answers to a personality quiz,  introduce a game-like aspect into the Facebook page and encourage interaction. They offer yet another new advertising vehicle.
