Develop your IM Network

By Daniel Scocco

Having a network of contacts and friends over Instant Messaging software is essential. Sometimes you might need someone to check a feature on your website, other times you might need a tip to solve a technical problem. In those situations it is always a good idea to have someone that you can chat in real time.

The key to building a large online network is to exchange contact details every time you interact with people over the Internet (e.g. online forums, emails, social bookmarking sites, etc.).

Below you will find my IM contacts, feel free to add me. If you wish to exchange your contacts with other DBT readers just post a comment below with your IM details:

    Jake, that is a lot of IM! I really look forward for the day all the different clients will inter-talk. It is just like the old days when email was limited to users within the same service provider.

    Btw just added you.

    Hi Daniel,

    This is a handy blog tip. IM is also great for getting some initial Diggs for a blog post. It’s not really “gaming” Digg. It’s just helping out friends, right?

    Daniel: I previously used Gaim, but now I have moved to using Psi and using Jabber transports. I never use the individual clients… the main reason I don’t have Skype is simply because it doesn’t work well with multi-protocol clients.

    Andrew, yeah having some online friends is also a good way to get a couple of initial diggs. I dont think that this is gaming the system for 2 reasons:

    First of all because pretty much everyone has one or two friends that he asks a digg once in a while.

    Secondly you can’t really game Digg. The content is either damn good or it won’t make it to the front page. There are hundreds of thousands of digg users filtering the content every day, you can’t game this collective intelligence.

  • Amanda

    The problem I’m having because of this is people just im you to get a hit to their site, then sign off.

    I’ve received several ims. That is not networking.

  • Daniel

    Amanda, that is strange so far I have not received promotional hits hehe!

    Actually when I start chatting with someone I am the one asking the address or their blog or website to check it out.
