Hi5 Integrates Launches IM Services

Posted May 6, 2009

Social networking company Hi5 has introduced instant messaging services recently.  The IM software built in to the social network does not require a download and runs entirely within the browser, similarly to Facebook Chat.  The service shows which of your friends are online.   Other features include emoticons, status updates, profile commenting, and photo sharing.  Charles Ying, a software architect for Hi5 said that IM was one of the most requested features of the website.
