When I used the site, it took me a little while to figure out how to change the colors and make connectors. If you click, you will get a new "bubble". If you hover over the bubble, you get menu choices for color, connecting and deleting. I kept accidentally changing the text color instead of the bubble color. To connect, you have to actually click on the connect icon and drag directly from there----not from the bubble itself. Once I figured that out, I was good to go (in my defense, it was very early this morning!).
In the end, I decided this was really fun and useful---and more importantly---FREE!
But, go and try it for yourself!

Don't look at the content---just the Bubbles!
