OXFORD, ENGLAND January 23, 2010 – Today, ChitChat.Org.Uk launched the update of its instant messenger Chit Chat for Facebook. The updated Facebook Chat instant messenger now enables users to save their Facebook Chat conversations, format their messages – including adding emoticons, and send Facebook wall posts.
Chit Chat for Facebook, launched in August 2009, has just passed the 120,000 user mark in the four months since launch.
"We recognized that there was a shift in instant messenger usage, from the traditional instant messengers like Windows Live Messenger and AIM to Facebook Chat." Said Daniel Offer, partner of Chit Chat for Facebook. "People prefer Facebook because they have all their friends on Facebook, but they dislike having to use their browser to stay logged in. So we built Chit Chat for Facebook."
Comscore reports that 70% of traffic to Microsoft domains comes from Windows Live Messenger and it is expected that the total amount of user hours spent on Facebook, which grew 193% from Sept 08 to Sept 09 will continue to grow exponentially throughout 2010 with the increasing preference of the Facebook Chat service over other instant messengers.
Chit Chat for Facebook allows users to enjoy the convenience and ease of an instant messenger whilst communicating over the Facebook Chat.
