Jaiku, a microblogging platform for lifestreaming, announced that it has added Jabber-based instant messaging capabilities to interact with the service and provide a new way for people to communicate and share content.
Jaiku also lets users choose and receive pre-determined web feeds from their friends online activities via IM, for example, flickr photos from some contacts, updates from specific blogs, Last.fm recently played tracks from others, etc.
Jaiku allows anyone to easily post and discover new content in Jaikuâ€™s online community. It goes several steps further than other presence applications by allowing readers to add comments to individual posts and also allowing anyone to create, join and participate in topic related channels.
Third party developers have also extended Jaikuâ€™s functionality for all major mobile and desktop platforms. Mobile users can access Jaiku via m.jaiku.com.
