September 1st, 2011

Social Widgets increase traffic and user-engagement on your website. They have the capacity to gather new customers or expand newly created communities, by allowing users to make comments, recommendations, etc. The use of social widgets on your site will give you valuable feedback from visitors and bring new ones to your website.

Allow users to make comments about the content of your site. Give the visitors of your site the opportunity to evaluate the content of your site, to help you and others know what’s hot and what’s not. Webnode is now offering a new collection of social widgets to its users.
