Gabbly is a great little tool that allows you to ‘chat’ over the top of a website. All you do is add ‘gabbly.com/’ in front of any URL.
For example if you type http://gabbly.com/caroldaunt.wordpress.com you’ll see a chat box appear on this page. If anyone else was doing the same you’d be able to chat with them. (Yes you do get embedded ads – it is free after all! I don’t promote these advertised sites.)
It should look like this:
We’ve used it as a channel for delegates to chat during a conference. I also find it useful when I’m discussing one of our sites with my web developer. We open gabbly & can chat about changes that need to be made on the site.
You can also open a private chat room – check the Gabbly site for more info.
NB: Gabbly promotes some other sites that I don’t support or recommend at all.
