Real-time blogging through IM on WordPress.com

October 13, 2009 | No Comments Yet

WordPress.com users have yet another fascinating new feature to play with that will bring blogging straight into the real-time era. Using a Jabber- and XMPP-based instant messaging (IM) client, you can post and subscribe to WordPress.com blogs, and it all happens inside chat windows. The video below explains how to get started:

At im.wordpress.com we have been experimenting with instant delivery of blog posts and comments. We started by providing a firehose for our partners but that was only the beginning. Now you can subscribe to WordPress.com blogs in your Jabber IM client and receive posts and comments the instant they are published. It is also possible to post to blogs from the chat client. In time we plan to add these real-time features to web pages. Soon the conversations on blogs will be as fast as chat rooms.
