You won't find any revolutionary features with Facebook Chat IM, a free instant messaging program, but it does give you a way to easily interface with your Facebook friends.
The free instant messaging tool presents an interface that anyone who has used an IM program will understand. Even those with no experience using an instant messenger will find the simple, clean interface easy to follow. There's a field for your message, a Send button -- all you need to instantly keep up with what your Facebook pals are doing. And you'll find all the staples of instant messaging, including emoticons, status updates, sound alerts, but you can also manage your Facebook privacy settings with the app.
One minor issue we found during the test is that the application installed a desktop icon without permission, but otherwise it works well as an IM program. Facebook users will like the integration with the popular social media site.
Facebook Chat IM is a free and open source Instant Messenger for Facebook, with it you can chat with all your Facebook friends directly from your Desktop without the need to be logged on to Facebook, so you can chat with your friends while surfing the Web, watching a movie or even when working. It's simple and convenient to use and offers many great features such as emoticons for Facebook, status update notification, sound alerts, chat history and much more. With Facebook Chat IM you'll never miss a friend and you'll have more fun while talking to them.
