Idebate.org utilizes new online tool to engage with website users
Earlier this week, IDEA introduced a new addition to their website that will help users actively engage with what is written on the site. The new "Reframe It" tool, recently introduced by Firefox, allows website visitors to highlight text, comment on it, and share their words with other visitors.
Part of the Reframe It mission expresses how this tool "makes it possible for users to place any online material in a new light...Reframe It is easy, accessible and empowering because it enables in-stream-of-thought commenting."
Users can sign into Reframe It with their Facebook, Twitter or Open ID accounts. Visit IDEA's official website at http://idebate.org to check out the new Reframe It tool and try it out!
