Chat with your facebook friends without logging through browser!

Recently Facebook is rising like a shining star and users are getting more user involvement comparing any other site, simple Facebook chat is becoming one of the most popular IM services of recent days. Where MSN, Yahoo! or Google chat is about chatting with professional concerns, Facebook offers less complicated chat with persons you really care, that can be your real life friend seating far away from you. Based on my personal experience, I can add that, I hardly find my real school and college mates online on general IM’s like MSN or Yahoo! Where they are maximum time online on Facebook chat! Even after not having updated features like super cool emoticons, file transfer, voice & video chat etc, Facebook chat is getting widely used because of large number of user involvement comparing other IMs like MSN, Yahoo! and Gtalk.

Now about today’s discussion: how to use Facebook chat with PC and mobile without using Facebook web. Nowadays Facebook website is quite steady and fast but still many of us face problem while using it browsing. Sometimes Instant messages don’t get updated in real time. And it’s hard to get noticed when a new chat window pops up. For this I refer you to use a desktop IM, which can make your Facebook chat experience more comfortable.  Based on Facebook IM popularity instant messenger software’s are adding Facebook chat with their chat program.  Even most popular instant messenger MSN messenger has testing their newest beta chat client which supports Facebook chat. But as it’s on beta stage yet, I suggest you to use AIM messenger client for Facebook chat!

AIM messenger: AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) is a chat program managed by a popular web company named AOL (American Online).  Its recent version has a extremely compatible Facebook chat.

Top five reasons why you should use AIM:

Facebook Chat


1. AOL is a highly reputed company; you should not worry about your account’s privacy and hacking issues.

2. The AIM chat client doesn’t even need a AIM/AOL account to login using Facebook! You can just integrate Facebook with it even without registering with AIM network. This is the most useful reason for why I suggest you to use AIM.

3. Where many chat client’s save your Facebook account’s password with their secure (!) server as they call it, AIM use Facebook OAuth secure authentication and don’t save your password with them completely. It’s more safe and secure!

4. The chat environment on AIM messenger with Facebook is COOL! Just like other IM’s like MSN/Yahoo! Easy to get notified when you receive a new message with sound and pop up screens right on to your desktop. You can even see your friends Facebook status updates, picture etc and even can update your status too. It has auto login feature enabled with Facebook so that you can even start chatting just after turning on PC without opening your web browser.  Your chat contacts are well organized even with your friend groups will appear too.

5. Few days ago, I referred one of my friends to use AIM chat for Facebook, whose internet provider has blocked Facebook access, and guess what! He was able access Facebook with AIM messenger. So if your ISP/network administrator is blocking Facebook, You probably should give a try on using AIM messenger.
