Just in time to watch twitter steal it’s thunder, Facebook has released it’s chat app. I’ve posted before suggesting that Facebook has already reached its zenith, chat may well stem the tide of defectors (after all im is a cool thing and adds to the stickiness, especially when “friends” no longer post in the news feed).

I’m thinking that Facebook is running hard trying to find some way to gain and retain membership and traffic – their growth curve has flattened out and they’re grasping for ways to buoy it up. Shame they didn’t IPO 6 months ago huh?
