When I started using the net, things were very different. Dial-up meant it took a long time to do almost anything, and once you were online, the connection was volatile. More so, we were limited to the tools the webmasters gave us. The site ruled the user. The site limited the user. The site was in control.

That’s not the case anymore. The age of the third party app is in control. If it doesn’t exist already, write it. If you can’t, someone else will, and within a short amount of time, it will be on facebook too.

Meebo.com is one of my favorite startups. They took the Trillian model and put it online. I haven’t used the official MSN, Gtalk, or AIM clients since I discovered Meebo. Yes, they do have a facebook app too! Not only are they marking their second birthday right around now, but they are taking their software one step further and opening the platform to developers.

No longer is the site in control, the third party is the key, and I want to wish Meebo every success!

  1. A bunch of us from WikiAnswers use Meebo to communicate (we’re all spread out across the world) but that’s for chatroom use. I haven’t really explored the combined iming aspect, although I’m not a big fan of it being from a browser.
