If you’ve visited my blog over the past two weeks or so, you would have noticed a narrow toolbar positioned at the bottom of every post and page. The toolbar enables you to conduct a keyword search, view recent blog posts, translate a given post into one of 11 languages, share the post on social media services, connect with me on Facebook, subscribe to the RSS feed, view notifications, hold a chat session with other blog visitors in real-time, and more.
Welcome to Wibiya.
I learned of Wibiya three weeks ago from Rachel Levy, who reviewed the Israeli startup’s plugin, writing:
What a great way to give people the functionality they want, without forcing them to leave your website and you never get them back. Sure, most of these tools are available with other WordPress plugins, but it’s great to have everything in one place, so you can fill your site with more good content.
After seeing the plugin also installed on Marketing Pilgrim, I decided to give it a go with minimal fanfare. Other than an off-topic positive comment by Andrea Hill, a neutral one by Phil Gerbyshak, and a negative email bit by Geoff Girardin, I don’t know what people think of it.
People are still visiting the Wibiya website to read about and download the plugin, despite a lull since its launch.
I don’t use the toolbar as much as I should. Rachel writes of an analytics feature, but aside from the curiosity of where around the world people are visiting my blog from, I haven’t explored the other statistical options. If you have Wibiya installed, do you use such? What do you think of Wibiya?
