Earlier this week I noticed a little box in the bottom right corner of my Facebook window telling me about Facebook chat, but I didn’t end up trying it out until just today. Although it seemed slow a couple times, I really like this new feature.

Facebook chat reminds me a lot of Gmails built in chat feature, which has become my most often used form of IMing. One thing I really like about Gmail’s build it chat is that I am able to catch a lot of friends who don’t usually log into IM clients. I will probably catch a lot more friends now through the Facebook chat feature. Facebook has already replaced email as my primary form of communicating with friends online. This new chat feature will likely take that a step further.If you’re on Facebook let’s chat sometime. I like to keep in touch with friends and love to meet new people. If you aren’t my friend yet, send me a friend request.

    I think facebook has a lot of real potential. Its going to be really interesting as the guys at facebook design and implement stuff like this.
    I’m actually watching out for the interesting twists they’ll bring to normal internet features.
    Nice post.

    I am glad that there are people who are benifitting on this new feature. If only I have enough friends in Facebook, maybe I am also one of those facebook users who are so glad about this chat feature. Unfortunately, I only have a few friends in person, and most of my facebook users are just friends for the sake of social networking. Well maybe it’s time for me to chat with them to know them more…

    Anyways… nice post Chris.

    the new chat features is awesome. I wish it can be launch without opening browser, like gtalk does. After some time, I’m sure facebook will launch a new IM.
