Digsby is a free software that combines the functions of Chat (Instant Messenger), Social Network, and Email in a single interface.
Look at the picture on the left.
I can still chat while checking the status updates of friends on Facebook. With this … no need to open an Internet browser and direct it to Facebook. And at the bottom, there are an email notification if any incoming email to inbox and can be viewed the summary.
Smaller image above shows the notification that appears when there is an incoming chat messages. You can reply directly via line chat messages are available below without opening the chat window.
To know all the features and facilities, please see the Features page.
I think the unique feature is the simple interface and ability to save settings so that wherever you use Digsby….. will always look the same as long as you uses the same account.
Some friends have problems when adding a social network account like Facebook. In my opinion, please login to Facebook first and do not close the Facebook window before this process is complete. Then add a Facebook account. Hopefully there will be no obstacle.
