August 18, 2006 Update: The Gabbly chat button has been changed and is reflected in the code below. You can see an example of it here
I stumbled on this gem of an application and figured it might be useful to you Myspace
, allows a user to chat
with other visitors of any site in a real time
What this means for you is that you, as well as your profile visitors, can now chat with anyone
that happens to be visiting your profile via a chat link embedded
on your page.
Sadly, no one was visiting my page while I was testing out this bad-boy (*sniff*).Here's Gabbly working on the Google homepage
As of today, the only browsers supported are: Firefox 1.5, IE 6.0, Safari 2.0, and Flock; but the good folks over at Gabbly are apparently working on supporting more browsers in the near future; Opera, and IE 7.0 have been mentioned.
Here's how to get it into your Myspace profile:
1. Copy the code below to the VERY END of your Myspace "About Me"
2. Next, in the code you just pasted, locate and replace YOUR_ID_GOES_HERE with your Myspace ID number. Your ID number can be found by opening another browser, visiting your Myspace profile
, then looking for it at the end of your Myspace URL; It'll be the series of numbers FOLLOWING "friendid=" (see the example below). Be sure to just replace YOUR_ID_GOES_HERE with your Myspace ID. No additional commas, slashes, or quotes.
3. Save it and you should be ready to go.
The CHAT bubble, will now allow you and any other visitor that also has clicked the bubble to chat with one another.
