In our previous article, we taught you how you can start building your social website with BuddyPress. If you were not able to have a look at it, then you can read it here, again.
Once you are done setting up BuddyPress, you need to get the communication rolling because social media is all about communication. Therefore, today, I am going to share with you how you can add a live chat client to your BuddyPress website. For this purpose, you need to have a live chat installed. Now, there are a lot of plugins available in the market, however, very few of them are free of cost but not preferable as they do not get updated regularly, hence, there is a possibility of vulnerability that can crash your whole website.
