In order to build an online effective communication between the participants, one of the most important factors is interactivity.

Eye tracking technology has been broadly used in the cognitive sciences.

It also describes the eye tracking technology in general, extracts variousexamplesfrom the eye tracking research field, with different applications, highlights its importance when analyzing the online consumer behavior,giving examplesfrom various studies and finds the key points of the methodological difficulties. Finally, this work has an important merit for the future studies when taking into consideration the eye tracking technologyin the online interactivity research and further, it is relevant for marketers, regarding the enhancement of online interactive interfaces and web or mobile applications.
