There are many options for a Web site, especially for those running under WordPress. Playing with different tools allow me to learn what is out there and how beneficial they may be to me or to my clients. Based on my experience, I may use or recommend the tool to my clients.
One such tool is a toolbar from Wibiya.com which I installed after starting an account with them. After exploring its features, I decided that it did not offer me any value and asked their tech support to remove my information. I wish all these companies added a simple feature “Delete my account”, upon clicking it would delete all the information I provided. I have been trying to get my name and e-mail removed from their system for the last 3 days, for some bizarre reason these Web companies latch on to your information with octopus tentacles and would not let go. All they succeed in getting in return is strong negative feeling, at least from me. I will not use their services, nor will I recommend them to any of my clients. These companies need to understand the value of treating the customer right and with respect. Only then, will they have a chance of building loyalty not by holding on to my information with an iron grip.
If you are interested in adding a toolbar to your WordPress site, I suggest that you look elsewhere and contact them before signing up to find out if they will remove your information on demand.
Stay away from Wibiya!
(Apparently, Wibiya is no longer available, thank goodness!)
