Free tool of the week: JS-Kit allows you to add polls, comments, ratings to your site

js-captureIf you think only expensive Web sites or blogs can offer interactive experiences—meet JS-Kit. It’s a perfect way for nonprofits to dip their toes in the social media stream without drowning. And, although you can purchase upgrades to the services, the basic JS-Kit is totally free.

These community building widgets are easy to install and simple to customize—just like the ShareThis features I blogged about last week. All it takes is a simple copy and paste. Just copy two lines of code to the place where you want the item to appear and done. There are no signups necessary.

The basic JS-Kit includes:

Score – Lets your readers score pages with thumbs up & down icons

Ratings – Lets your users rate objects on your website using a 5-star rating system.

Comments – Adds a full-featured commenting engine to your web site; discover what pages on your website stir most interest. (Yes, there are moderation tools!)

Reviews – Lets your readers rate and leave reviews.

Polls – Lets your readers take short  polls; easy, quick research for you and fun for them.

JS-Kit is an easy way to add interactivity to your site and engage your visitors. Try it!
