Free guestbook

A guestbook, in the context of an Internet website, is a logging system that allows visitors to that website to indicate their thoughts about the site or its subject. Normally, it does not require creation of a user account, as it is normally an informal method of dropping off a quick note.

The purpose of a website guestbook is normally to display the kind of visitors the site gets, including the part of the world they reside in, presented as a linear list of messages. It is normally not intended for purposes of carrying on discussions.

A guestbook is, therefore, different from a chat room (which is more or less realtime communication), or an internet forum (which is sectioned out in subject threads).
