New Facebook IM Client Preparing to Launch

Friendvox Chat applicationAccording to blognation, a brand new IM client for Facebook is going to be launching for Facebook in the coming weeks. I covered a chat application back in June which plans on leveraging the Facebook social graph. The application which at the time was called “Airwaves” has changed names to “Fuze.” This new application has been hyped up as though it is the official Facebook chat application that also has an open API.

While it may be the first stand alone chat application to launch, it is not going to be the last, nor does it have a robust set of features. This is an extremely simple chat application but it is definitely a great first attempt. Unfortunately there is no way to test out the application currently so you’ll have to wait until it launches.
