I give credit to AIM for being the FIRST Social Network as we now have come understand the Internet-based term (perhaps the real credit should go to Ham Radio and CB Radio Operators, but that’s a topic for a separate blog post).
Then there was Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger.
What did all three of these social networks have in common?
Long before Google Chat, other Social Networks evolved.
Personally, I sliced off LIVE Chat as a separate Social Networking application, but it is really the core. Live chat is THE ULTIMATE social.
Thus far, I have used Trillian to combine all IM accounts into one client, but today they have failed. Today, I am a happy customer of Meebo.
On this one, I am NOT biased.
