What is user engagement? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Personal computing glossary:

User engagement is an assessment of an individual's response to some type of offering, such as a product, a service or a website. 

An individual's degree of engagement may be determined directly through interaction or may be assessed through observation of the user's behaviors. A website user, for example, might click links, comment, download documents and watch videos, among other possibilities.

In a marketing context, user engagement is often referred to as customer engagement (CE).
