While Facebook has got a lot of its users running for to have a unique username in their URL, its engineers report that users send more than a billion messages each day from its IM. The social network has made quite some improvements to its chat which include the integration of friend list. With that numbers it means everyone sends an average half a dozen messages; of course that’s just an average and there might be users who sent hundreds of them and some might not use the option at all. While that number is way to less compared to other IMs like Windows Live Messenger, but the growth is very exponential and it might eventually become a pretty useful alternative.
