A Must See: Wibiki Opens

Posted on 9.20.2007

Wibiki has launched a free, easy to use server based adblocker. What's so interesting about another adblocker you say? Lots actually. Lots and lots. With Wibiki, users can block ads and can choose either replacement content, such as posting boards and free personal widgets, or just leave the space white. Pretty revolutionary.

"Users can block ads safely with no fancy software and actually use the blocked ad space. I can share my posts with my buddies without having to go to other websites or my email. We have built a Public Timeline Twitter widget as an initial demonstration of what we plan to offer. Our goal is to offer users what they want and help them reduce unnecessary site hopping across the various social networks," said Michael Gill, a software engineer of Wibiki labs.

In addition, Wibiki has a block and unblock choice for its users. When in blocked mode, all ads known to the server are not seen by users. When in unblocked mode, users can see a posting "biki" board where they can view recent community posts. A "buddy" board feature allows friends to have a private message board to share their special interest links.

"We have discovered new space for users to work with on the Internet. We look forward to working with the advertising community to help reduce "adblindness" which hampers the value proposition for today's online advertisers. At Wibiki, we believe in a simple motto ... the users rule," stated Shant Hovnanian of Wibiki.
