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.
