Use Wibiya to Chat with Your Facebook Friends

Hey! We’ve just upgraded our Social Chat application and created a new tab through which you can chat freely with all your online facebook friends!

Once they click the tab, users can view a list of their online facebook friends and invite them to chat. The web application also has a special search through which users can search and find the friends they are interested in chatting with.

Other features the facebook IM upgrade is introducing include:

  • An ‘invite all’ button that will post an invitation on the user’s facebook directly from the application.
  • The first time your user posts from this chat feature a link to the site page will be included. This will ensure that facebook users will see where the message was sent from and visit your site.
    Status control. Users can choose between a green online status and an offline status.
  • You can minimize a chat window and it will be saved as a small tab on your toolbar. It will remain static and available as your user browses through the different pages of your site, meaning they can get back to chatting whenever they want.

This is part of a series of apps we are introducing to help you integrate facebook into your site and connect your site with the social network.

What are the advantages?

Plenty! This connects one of the most popular facebook features with your site, meaning users will stay on your site longer and share more of your content with their friends. This makes your website a social hub and will lead to reduced bounce rates and an increase in traffic.

So, check this new IM and let us know what you think about it.

Understanding the Social Chat Analytics

Take a look at the new dashboard. You can get analytics for each of the web applications installed on your site. Let’s look at the new social chat analytics. It provides some interesting information on the social activity generated by the social chat application on your website.

The detailed click information tells you exactly how many users clicked on the public chat room through the social chat application on your toolbar. In addition, it tells you how many conversations took place, how many users connected and how many private chats took place.

This is not a replacement for the social analytics you can access in the next tab, but instead, it shows you how the social chat application has been impacting your site’s social activity.

Seeing how much activity each web app is getting helps increase your understanding of the role which the toolbar is playing to increase user engagement on your site.


Get More Fans with the New and Improved Like Button

Great news! From now on, you can choose to connect the ‘like’ button to your fan page.
We’ve just given the facebook like application a major upgrade and now, visitors to your website can click the like button and become your facebook fans.

Until now, the facebook like button application was attached solely to the content page. This means that whenever a visitor clicked the ‘like’ button they were ‘liking’ the content on that page. You can still keep the regular settings and connect your ‘like’ button to your website’s content, the difference is that now you can choose how you want promote your site and what type of a connection you want to make with facebook.

Many of you have been writing us and asking for this feature, so we are extra excited to make this available to you now.

Connecting the ‘like’ button to your fan page will give your fan page a major boost, linking the traffic on your website with the traffic on your facebook fan page.

To choose the option you prefer go to your facebook ‘like’ button application’s settings.
