Take Your IM Public on Facebook

Facebook’s app may have quieted the market for third-party, in-site IM, but several tools that connect Facebook users to public networks appear to be thriving.

“Robert Rudd, the developer of Tri-chat messaging for Facebook (an application we’ll cover in just a bit), says that, as many other developers believed, there just didn’t seem to be a good way to connect Facebook users with their AIM, MSN and Yahoo buddies. Rudd also said that he has never felt there was a lot of competition in the Facebook IM development space, but now with Facebook’s own client thrown into the mix there may not be much need for other Facebook IM and chat applications.”
