AIM Wimzi

Filed under Uncategorized

I recently blogged about showing your ICQ status on a webpage and I get this in the mail….

AIM now has a service called WIMZI that allows you to embed a little script on a page and lets visitors to a site chat you up without getting your AIM ID, etc.

Very interesting. Even better than the status indicator because a visitor can start a chat right there on the site. A bit like those “Chat with a support rep” services, but it’s effectively free.

I wonder if that will end up having an impact of any sort on the paid offerings. I’m guessing they support a bit more accountability, plus some amount reporting (number of chat requests answered per rep, that sort of thing).

I’ll have to try it out here soon.
