ChatCreator is a very easy to use private chat tool.
To create a chat just enter a name for that chat and hit go, then send the chat URL to a friend, once you are both viewing this URL you can chat.
This seems more disposal than Conversate, but much easier to get a chat started as you don’t need to register.
I guess the chat is permanent and you continue later on as the URL is unique and isn’t going anywhere…now how to add this to the footer of my blog posts.
At the moment if someone reads my blog posts and they want synchronus communication, they can click on the Gabbly icon to chat to others on the Gabbly page of my post, or they can click the 3bubbles link, but they are limited to chatting to others who have done the same.
Actually, Gabbly will work quite easily, just like you email or IM a friend the ChatCreator URL you created, just send them the Gabbly URL for the post, or send them the post and get them to hit the Gabbly bookmarklet.
NOTE: For others not familiar with Gabbly, for any URL just put “gabbly.com” at the start of the URL, and a chat box will appear for the URL, or click the Gabbly bookmarklet to chat about the page you are on.
If anyone else has done the same you can chat, otherwise email or IM your friend and tell them do to what you did and you can chat.
Same goes with 3bubbles, just send your friend the blog post URL and get them to click the 3bubbles icon on the footer of the blog post…the advantage with Gabbly is that you don’t need the blog owner to have the icon on the footer you can launch the chat box yourself.
So it seems Gabbly is just as easy as using ChatCreator to instantly chat about a blog post, only ChatCreator is more private (invitation based)
I’ve also got the conversate icon on each blog post footer for people to private chat about a blog post, it is more cumbersome, but still effective.
Now for 3spots to work some magic so I can footerise this chat.
Here’s an example of using Gabbly, see who else is on Gabbly for the Google homepage URL
If no-one is there but you want to chat about Google in general to a friend give them the URL, or tell them to go to the Google homepage and prepend it with gabbly.com/
