For seven years, BigBlueBall has been one of the few reliable resources on the web for coverage of all instant messenger networks. In those seven years, we've seen IM products come and go, and been here with you all the way. Your instant messaging contact list was then, and still is today, the original social network.
Today, technology gives us lots of choices for connecting with our friends, family and associates. Social networks like Myspace, Facebook and Twitter let use keep our friends up-to-date with a persistent that isn't matched by IM. Mobile technology helps us stay connected no matter where or when.
To help you sort out the veritable plethora (gawd I've wanted to say that for so long!) of connection options, we are expanding BigBlueBall to cover all the ways you can stay connected. To begin, we have added two new forum sections.
Thanks to Philip for getting the ball rolling with his poll, and thanks to all of you who shared your view of where BigBlueBall should be moving.
Now join me in the forums and bring your tips, links, and questions.
