Should You Use Facebook Chat?

[Note: this is a guest post written by Daniel Offer]

According to Alexa, Facebook is the second most visited website on the internet. Its instant messaging service, however, isn’t as well used as other services that Facebook provides.

The browser based Facebook Chat instant messaging service is designed to be independent of any operating system. Moreover, it’s designed to be used alongside other Facebook’s features, for example whilst browsing friends photos or playing on a Facebook game application.

As a result of this browser dependence, many people are still using instant messaging networks that they have grown accustomed to such as Yahoo Messenger or Google Talk even though they have more friends to talk to on Facebook.

One of the consequences of this browser based dependence, to which many Facebook users find a grievance, innovative Facebook Chat clients have been developed by third parties.

Chit Chat for Facebook was one of the first third party Facebook chat clients. Chit Chat with its simple and easy to use interface, much like Google Talk or Yahoo Messenger, eliminates the involvement of your web-browser to send instant messages to your Facebook friends.

The Facebook Chat client makes it much easier to multitask – i.e. chat on Facebook whilst using your web-browser for other purposes.
