iFlyChat allows visitors of your WordPress site to chat with each other privately (one-to-one chat) or together in chat rooms.

iFlyChat is a real time chat plugin best suited for community and social networking websites. It helps in increasing user engagement of your WordPress site by enabling users to chat with each other privately (one to one private conversation), group chat or in chat rooms.
