Blackberry Messenger revolutionised chat by allowing you to connect with your other Blackberry friends quickly and securely. Then you have WhatsApp which hopes to connect across all phones by using your contacts phone numbers.

Messenger is a new app that brings Facebook to your desktop. While you surf the web or use other applications on your computer, you can: Chat and message with your friends on Facebook See the latest updates from your friends in ticker Get quick notifications about what’s going on Messenger lets you use Facebook without being on www.facebook.
