Because sometimes, the discussion in the blog post comments resembles more a quick and dirty IM session than a disciplined exchange of thoughts, worthy of permament storage on the server.
Or maybe you are using some Confluence pages as workspace area, where a real-time collaboration occurs? A chat service would also be extremely handy in such circumstances.
Well, now you can do all of the above. We have just released a MeetingRoom Lite Confluence plugin that provides an mrjr macro, letting you embed a chat widget anywhere you wish on a page or a blog post.
While not as feature-rich and powerful as its older brother, MeetingRoom (which by the way also provides a Confluence macro), it is extremely simple to use (all parameters are optional) and requires zero configuration.
And best of all - you don't have to pay a penny for it, it is absolutely free.
