Last time, I shared with you Wibiya Toolbar’s new app called Express Affiliate Links Application which automatically converts all of your blog links into affiliate links, helping you earn more money from your blog. Today, I’m gonna share with you another cool app from Wibiya.
The Social Connect web app will make it very easy for your users to use their favorite social networks, connecting to multiple networks (such as facebook, Twitter and others) simultaneously. You will be able to adjust the web application settings manually to include the networks you want and new ones will be added as time goes by.
Once connected, your users will be able to perform various actions directly from your site, without leaving the web page. The actions depend on the network of their choice, but include status updates in facebook, adding friends, following and tweeting on twitter, updating MySpace and much more.
What makes Wibiya’s Social Connect web app great is that with just a single click, you or your blog readers will be able to do status updates on multiple social networks simultaneously without leaving your site. Also, the status can include the page/post title and an automatically generated shortened link. Aside from that, this new app will also boost your site’s interactivity, help lower bounce rate, help distribute your content across multiple social networks and integrate different features according to each connected social network.
The only minor issue I’ve encountered while using the Social Connect app on my Wibiya Toolbar is that when I try to update my Twitter status, the update is messed up (lots of spaces between words) and I have to edit it before posting it. For me it’s not a big issue but a few seconds mean a lot to some users who are in a hurry.
If you’re already using the Wibiya Toolbar, then you need to go and install the Social Connect web app ASAP! If you haven’t tried the Wibiya Toolbar or if you’ve removed it from your blog/website, then this new app/feature might change your mind and make you reinstall it. New features will be added to the Social Connect app and the Wibiya team will announce it as soon as they’re available, including details on how to use it.
What do you think of Wibiya’s new Social Connect web app? Anyone else using it on their blog or website? What do you like/dislike about it? What features would you like to see added to this app or to the Wibiya Toolbar? Please share your thoughts.
