Hosted Chat for Your Site

March 19th, 2007 No comments

Update (2007.04.30): inCircles will now be Pladeo. You will need to update your embed codes to or go to the site and generate new code.

This chat is a hosted Flash chat solution by and it is currently in Alpha release. Obtaining the embed code is a simple 2 step process. Configure a few basic items (provide an email address) and then enter your site URL to generate the code. It doesn’t get much easier than that. It seems to work pretty well.

There is an interesting feature along the top. It provides a list of popular pages in the inCircles network. While this is a good tool to expose users to new sites, it would have been nice to have the option to disable that or at the very least have a recommendation/relevance engine driving it. We’re not sure that it adds any value in its current state and may actually deter people from using this chat. Why would we promote other non-relevant sites?

Discovered this over at Widgets Lab.
