Chat With Your Visitors Using AIM’s Wimzi

AIM’s Wimzi widget offers a way to chat with visitors to a Web site or social network profile without having to provide your AIM username.

Wimzi can be used by any AIM user with a Web presence. Once embedded on your page this widget enables you to privately chat with visitors while they are on your site. If you use a personal AIM account—and not a work account—you can still incorporate the widget on your business or work page without giving away your personal AIM name.

You will need version 6.1 or higher of the AIM Client if you want to integrate the widget with your AIM Buddy List. This will let you chat with a Web site visitor in the same way you IM your buddies, using the AIM client.

  3. I follow your blog for a long time and must tell that your posts are always valuable to readers.

  4. If you don’t have AOL instant messenger, you might want to try out hab.la it has similar functionality to wimzi, but works with most Instant Messaging clients to help you provide livehelp on your website.

    (Also has the same problem as Winzi in that you can’t put it on myspace)
