Facebook has introduced Facebook Instant Messenger, its own chat service that is giving other IM services a good run for their money.
Facebook has conquered all. The social networking platform has left its counterparts behind and it is now way ahead. Facebook Instant Messenger , a chat service, is now being used and appreciated by one and all since it gives you the freedom to seek access to your account along with chatting with others at the same time.
Facebook IM has outshone other IM services. Going by the current trend, Facebook has been developing various messenger apps for smartphones so that people could use them on the go. Apparently, it seems that the days of AOL are back since Facebook has now come up with a messenger app for Windows 7-enabled desktops and laptops.
Facebook's standalone messenger app for Windows 7 has currently been released in the testing beta version. The all-new messenger will surely increase the popularity of Facebook. Although there are various third-party IM clients that have been providing these Facebook messenger apps for quite some time now, only a few are preferred by users because of their extensive and user-friendly features.
This Facebook-oriented chat messenger only supports the Facebook chat system. Apart from the IM features, the messenger also comprises a live ticker feed and notification feature to provide information about new notifications, friend requests and other details.
According to reports, the chat messenger was developed by the Facebook engineering team in Seattle and California. Since the messenger is in the testing version now, various changes will have to be done in the future.
The Facebook messenger will be drawing users of other IM services towards it since it has more features to offer. You can download it from the Facebook help center.
