Web browsing becomes a social experience
When visiting a website, people may be at home, in the office, on a train, or anywhere in the real world. But they are also on a web page, a virtual place where they can meet other people in real time.
Ask questions to their peers
Without Now4real, a site’s visitors may only interact in real time with customer service reps via live chat, if available. But in many cases, a live chat simply doesn’t exist (think about news sites). And if it exists, users prefer to ask questions, suggestions, and opinions to their peers, rather than to company reps.
Discover people’s current country
Visitors can even see a world map showing where people are in the real world. It’s a heatmap where the colors represent the number of people from every country, and it’s updated in true real time.
Being able to see the countries is intriguing and helps chatters know a bit about each other, but privacy and security are never given up. Geolocation always stops at the country level. And countries are only shown on the heatmap, without linking them to individual chatters.
Real-time maps are available both for individual pages and the whole website.
