Xat Chats - Group chat from Xat.com
To those of you who remain unfamiliar with Xat.com and their Xat chats, this is for you.
Xat chats, which we were introduced to in late 2007 and blogged about here in mid 2008 have been stealthily growing and growing. Just as we said in '08, the site has grown and matured into something fantastically addictive and very very social.
So what is Xat exactly? Xat is a site that allows users to create a branded (think vanity URL) Xat chat group. Users are able to change their Xat chat background, its page background, choose their own avatars, and also (this is important!) incorporate full fledged websites below their Xat chats.
Xat, of course, is much more than just that. There is something very social about the Xat site that makes it stand out from the likes of Myspace, Facebook, and really any traditional social network type site(s) . Users of Xat can for example, purchase "days and xats" (Xat's own site currency) to purchase and trade Xat addons (called Xat powers). These "powers", some of which are highly sought out, have become a central feature of the Xat site and give regular users a unique way to stand out from everyone else.
Short of registering at the Xat site and trying some of these things out yourself, you'll just have to take my word for it. :)
Also, if you're looking for a Xat resource site and some good instruction to help you get started, I highly recommend Xatworld.com (for english) and Mundoxat.com (Spanish). I'll be posting a few odds and ends from each Xat resource site to get you pointed in the right direction.
