Posted by at 10:17 am on February 11, 2010

AOl has announced a new integration with Facebook that allows millions of AIM and Facebook users to add friends and invite them to chat across both environments. AIM is the first major instant messaging service to take advantage of Facebook Chat’s new API/interface to create a seamless chat experience for users. The new service is already available in beta with cleints for Mac, Windows and browser at www.aim.com/beta.   Last night there was an update to the AIM iPhone and iPod touch client supporting IMing to Facebook users.

“This year and beyond is all about putting our focus back on consumers and providing them with the best possible communications experience across the Web,” said Michelle Trainor, Vice President, AIM. “Integrating AIM and Facebook Chat is a great step on the path we’re pursuing to offer universal access through AIM across a variety of communications platforms -“ and users can look forward to more innovations to come.”

Under the new partnership, Facebook Chat will also be tightly integrated with Lifestream, which aggregates updates and feeds from various social networking sites into the AIM environment.
