FaceBook is adding chat

Filed under: Social Networking,web,Windows Mobile — Simon May @ 1:43 pm

A number of announcements came out of FaceBook yesterday, one of the most interesting is FaceBook chat.  They will be placing a chat window at the bottom of your browser and you’ll be able to chat with anyone online, and I guess we’ll be able to send messages to those who aren’t through it too.

Given the FaceBook platform I’m tipping this to be one of the most developed apps on FB in the coming months.  I can really see this functionality coming to Fring or Palringo very quickly and that’s really cool!  Not many of my friends sign on to Live Messenger that often, but about half of my friends on FB are active, so I’ll be able to contact them more…and them me.  We’re obviously going to see lots of desktop clients too.  FB have 67 Million active users, that’s huge, this is going to be huge.

Also announced, better privacy based on social proximity (i.e. friends, friends of friends, randoms etc.).  Chat is coming in two weeks.  [via inside facebook]

  1. Since most of the facebook’s working is too good even without chat thing, but even then chat availability will be appreciated by almost 90% of the facebook users i think!
