I got excited when I saw a snippet in my RSS reader that said Facebook IM client coming soon!.
When I dug into it, I quickly found that they were talking about FriendVox which is literally an IM. Who knows if these screenshots are accurate:
As soon as I saw this I said …. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The point isn’t to do yet another IM client. The point to Face IM is to do much more. I don’t need another application that lists the name of various friends giving me no useful information. The point is to have a client that gives me more about my social graph, and if done well, I wouldn’t even have a browser open to Facebook that I have to reload to see if anything is new.
