Facebook Chat Launch Appears Imminent


It appears that Facebook’s chat application may be launching very soon. Facebook has been making a significant number of JavaScript updates throughout the day. Facebook has also added a presence cookie which appears to store information about your related to chat and where you are located on the site. The real change which has sparked our intrigue is that Facebook now has a continuous TCP connection with all logged in users.

This is only necessary for those applications that are looking to push data back to the user beyond the typical loading of a webpage.
