Want Instant Delivery of New Blog Posts & Comments?
Do you ever wish you could get instant notification of when your favorite bloggers update? Or even when a new comment is published on their blogs? If so, you might want to use a service called Jabber to make your blog conversations as fast as lightning (well, almost as fast).
With Jabber, you get split-second delivery of new blog posts and comments — for any WordPress.com blog you want to follow. This means there’s no need to wait for your RSS feed to update, or to use blog email subscriptions.
There are endless ways that Jabber might be used, but here’s a real-life example straight from WordPress.com headquarters. Of course, being a blogging company, our staff uses a lot of different team blogs to track information and to communicate. By using Jabber, we get instant notification when someone has published a new post or comment — and in return, one of us can respond right back. Often, these threads become full-on conversations, almost as if we’re in a chat room. However, because we’re using WordPress.com, we have a stored and searchable record of the conversation. It’s a super-fast, super-efficient way of communicating online.
Using Jabber requires that you have a WordPress.com account and use a Jabber client. You then connect following our instructions, and presto: instant communication.
