The newest feature of one of the widely used social networking sites of Filipinos is an IM (instant messaging) where one could chat with his/her friends online. The IM/chat functionality is powered by Meebo. The interesting feature about Multiply using Meebo is that you can also chat with your friends who are using other social networks and websites.
To date, Meebo can connect you to:
- Yahoo! Messenger
- MSN Messenger
For chatting with Multiply friends, you need to login to Multiply.
Interface of the Multiply IM is similar to that of Facebook. I guess some would prefer Multiply’s IM since it can be connected to other social networking sites.
