Integration of Virtual World with Existing Instant Messaging Services

Mangesh Bedekar and Rajat Goyal

Abstract—With billions of chat messages sent using Facebook and similar or rather more amount of messages sent using Google talk and Gmail Chat every day, we have millions of people who use instant messaging .But in the recent years there has not been much development in the human computer interface of various instant messaging clients and it remains restricted to sending message by typing in a textbox. This paper uses various XMPP based instant messaging services like Facebook Chat, Google talk and AOL chat as examples to describe how user experience can be enhanced by merging Virtual World with Instant messaging services.

Index Terms—Instant messaging, virtual worlds, XMPP.
