Wibiya Social Toolbar When you add the Wibiya social toolbar you install a little bar across the bottom of your website or you blog. The Wibiya social toolbar integrates fully with all of the different social network sites, like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Buzz. The reason why you want to have Wibiya on your site is because the visitors coming to your site can interact; do all of their social media chit chatting and posting without leaving your site. You want this because we live in an attention-based society and the more you can have the attention based on your site the better. Watch the Wibiya social toolbar in action in the video and learn more about how it can help you build stronger online communities.
