In a world where the increasingly revenue desperate Facebook has taken over the instant messaging space. I like this new idea.
Twoople gives you a personal URL… mine is www.twoople.com/seanamcginty and when it’s clicked people can chat with me, anywhere on any device. You can swap files too which is nice.
I miss ICQ
I am not sure what I might use it for personally as I.M. has not been my bag since ICQ went the way of all flesh but I wish them well as I think we need something like this.
I suppose if I ever set up an online business then it would be a nice addition to a customer service offering which is a lot more efficient that taking telephone calls all the time and more instantaneous than email.
Also (thinking about it) it could be a way for me to stop having to use Facebook to communicate with bands, artists and community radio people!
And they are Canadian which means they are nice people.
