    Ummm where's Digsby or Pidgin?? I've used both and they're great! I do prefer Digsby over Pidgin though.

      @Aaron: They were in my list of Facebook messengers, but they did not come in Top 5.

        May I ask what kept Digsby from the Top 5?

        • http://intensedebate.com/people/ilovefreesw ilovefreesw

          @Aaron: just the fact that I believe that the 5 featured here are better than Digsby for Facebook messaging. Digsby is really good if you need something to support multiple chat networks, but Digsby does not have lot of Facebook specific features. Digsby doesn't even supports Facebook out of the box, you have to install plugin to use Digsby as Facebook messenger.

            I completely understand what you mean, but I think you may be getting Digsby confused with Pidgin. Pidgin does need a plug-in and you're right it also doesn't have much integration with Facebook. However, Digsby does integrate directly with Facebook as far as providing updates in the news feed and even having an app so people on your Facebook page or even your blog and chat directly with you in real time right off the site without the need to download it. Maybe you're like me where you have used it, but haven't recently. I just switched back to it about 2 months ago and it really works! It's not just Facebook either, It works with twitter, linkedin, myspace even your webmail clients. The ones you listed probably have more features for only Facebook, but Digsby has been making some ground. Great post though! I follow you guys quite a bit.

            @Aaron: You are absolutely right that my previous comment was for Pidgin and not Digsby :) And you are right about Digsby that I had used it some time back, and not recently.

            I checked the Digsby website again for features, and let me say that it should have come in this list, and probably right after Trillian Astra. I will update this article and add Digsby also to it.

            Thanks for pointing that out :)

            Yeah no problem! Glad to have helped. The social networking integration of Digsby has gotten a lot better and I have really liked where it has gone! I actually am thinking of posting about all it's new features on my blog sometime in the future as well. I really like your website here. It doesn't seem too popular yet, but it's got great content!

            By the way just out of curiosity (and this is off topic) how do you track all your comments? I am looking for something that can track comments on all blogs that I comment on no matter if it's mine. CNET or on this one. Is there something like that?

            @Aaron: I am not aware of any such commenting utility. There are multiple comment software that websites use, like IntenseDebate, Disqus etc. So, if you have a profile with each of these, then you can track comments posted on all the websites that use these software. Still, there isnt any global solution.

            Thanks again for the reply! Shortly after I asked that I actually found something that fits my needs! It's called co.mments. Basically it tracks the new comments on any site that you set it to track. You do need an account, but after that is set up all you do is simply drag the a bookmarklet into your bookmarks bar and when you're on a site you want to track you just click it and it automatically adds it to your profile. Maybe you have heard of it. It's pretty nice.
