Echo, a powerful, new comment-gathering widget from JS-Kit, collects feedback and comments from social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and FriendFeed into a real-time stream of conversations that updates without manually refreshing the comments page of a web site. Echo debuted this week on building43.com, the first site to implement it in its comments area (try it out below). In this interview with Robert Scoble, Khris Lou CEO and co-founder of JS-Kit, shows off Echo and explains how a web site owner can engage with the customers’ conversations. Here’s a link to Tech Crunch’s piece about Echo when the product launched on July 10.
Note: Echo offers a free version and a premium version. At building43, we’ve implemented the premium version.
[Editorial comment: Although we have implemented the premium version of Echo, we do want to make it clear that we were provided the premium service at no charge to building43 - in exchange forus being the lab rat on the first live installation of Echo - Rob]
