Getting Personal with Chime.In

There has been a lot of chatter recently about a new social service called Chime.In. I decided to check it out because I am a little bit bored with Facebook and although I love Twitter, sometimes I would like a little more interaction. This site is interesting in this regard. It’s like a cross between Facebook and a blog. You can create and join specific communities and find others who are interested in exactly the same thing. Of course you can add pictures, video, links and polls to your posts. You can also chat directly with people that are online right then about that subject. I like the idea of this because sometimes you have something to say right then and you want immediate feedback. You can create tags in different areas so that you can see when someone has replied to your post even if it’s not directly related to that particular subject. This could also be very useful for business sites as well as you could easily gear your followers over to a more personal live chat and you would already know that they would be interested in the subject matter. I’ve decided to give it a try and see if this will take the place of Facebook in my life. Please let me know if you try it and like it and we can enjoy it together.
