Getting your site’s visitors to interact with one another can have many benefits. Site visitors will talk to one another and develop a site community which discusses site changes and lets you know what is going good and what needs improvement.

One way to enable visitor interaction is by providing online instant messaging features. Envolve does exactly that for your site.

Envolve introduces Facebook-like chat to your website. Through the insertion of a few lines of code, you will easily get a chat interface in the bottom right of your site like the one displayed in the image above.

Like mentioned earlier, Envolve makes its usage very user friendly for site runners and blog owners. Whether you are running a massive site or a private blog, Envolve can help you in getting your audience to talk to one another. Check out Envolve.
