Geert Desager sent me an invite for Weblin earlier today, and since Geert and I are pretty much on the same page when it relates to anything interactive that definitely means I should check it out. How does it work? What does it do?
“Weblin the perfect addon to your Windows Live Messenger. Weblin makes you and your friends visible in the Internet as little avatar characters. You are not alone when you surf the web. Weblin brings you a new exiting and lively world on every website. Get to know People, who share the same interests with you.”
On the screenshot below you can see my Weblin (or whatever they call this little avatars) on the Weblin homepage together with 3 other persons. People on the same page can initiate a chat together (in a little chat window) and some will have the little Messenger buddy icon next to it so you can start a Messenger conversation, with all features you have in Messenger.
All pretty cool stuff, I’ll try it for a while and see if it sticks but I do like the idea.
