Uggh, I can now see why. My sound output changed after I updated to the latest version of Ecamm Live. Thanks for letting me know. I probably wouldn’t have known otherwise!

HAHA I love Social Media Examiner and the content they share BUT that particular pop up really annoys me

Yep, I know what you mean! I’m in two minds. As a user I hate those kinds of pop ups, but as a web site owner I’ve seen that they can work.

I have put a live chat bot on a customers website and get a great deal of enquiries

Oh dear, that’s not good. It obviously needs A LOT more work!

One of the ones that annoy me the most is SME – as soon as you land on their page you get the free Social media Marketing Industry Report that takes up the entire screen on mobile

I think testing pop ups on mobile is so important!

If a service business website doesn’t have live chat, then I tend to avoid it…

I’m with you Julia, really don’t like pop ups that appear as soon as you land on the page

Yes, I can see both sides. I don’t like them either as a visitor – unless they are subtle and load as I am leaving maybe?

What about this recent Gogle slap for slow loading websites?

The trade off between usabilty and security is always gonna be hard, like 2 factor authentication that I already have set up on lots of accounts

Very true. But at the moment – good security is just too difficult for the average user. It shouldn’t need to be that difficult.

Lastpass saves my frustration like Julia’s from logging in to websites etc.

Great point. I’m not overly convinced by it!

Mark Orr

I’ve seen a few marketers pushing tools to add it to websites especially with Alexa etc becoming more popular!!

Interesting, Mark. I’ve not seen anyone talking about it recently. I’ll need to do some more research.
