Welcome Wibiya

January 8th, 2010 by Tom & Reiko Beach

WibiyaDo you have a web site that needs updating?  I have some, and I wanted to add social media awareness to the site…enter Wibiya.  Now I have an apps bar that shows my visitors where to find us without them leaving the site, and I get stats!

Search the site, translate it, show my latest on YouTube, Facebook friends, twitter, latest blog entries, let them share the page with friends. Put on a chat, show realtime users.

It took me about 30 minutes to set everything up, and was so simple to add to a blog or website. So as I work on updating my site, I have at least added something new to it.  Check it out at: GymSmarts!
