Increase user engagement
Grow the community beyond your own site
A feature for your community
Existing communities may employ weblin.io to enhance their community. Weblin is an additional feature for the community allowing communities to reach beyond their own content offerings. Communities get access to their users even if those users are browsing the web somewhere else.
Especially publishers who provide their content through distribution sites like YouTube and Twitch can reclaim the time that their users spend on the distribution site for themselves. Users who are aware of other users watching the same content and in particular users who chat and interact while doing so will stay longer and consume more content. In addition, even small-scale gamification of user interaction on streaming content might increase the time spent with the content.
Your community across the entire web
All weblin users form a large social network across the web. The general weblin.io community may grow into a powerful social network, that pushes the boundaries of traditional social networks in single domains. Already, social-network and ad-suppliers strive to reach beyond their respective sites by employing page add-ins, like-buttons, analytics-snippets, and AdSense-modules. They try to cover as much web space as possible. Yet, weblin.io automatically covers all web sites where weblins happen to be easily surpassing the range of SN silos and Ad networks.
The combination of an already established social network with weblin.io is unbeatable. If a large social network chooses to offer weblin.io as a feature, then that social network will out-compete all other SNs because it will cover the entire web. This SN will not only command the time their users spend on the SN's own domain, but also the time users spend somewhere else, even on competing offerings.
