Communication Overload

Facebook Chat originally launched on April 6th and it's been gradually released in other areas but this morning it became available to the masses. Not so significant to people already using instant messenger services but still another feather in the cap for Facebook. Arriving to work this morning I was alerted to the chat feature as I logged in to check my friends activity. There were a small fraction of my friends online and I expect that to increase as more people become aware of the feature being active. I haven't been swamped by people contacting me thankfully but then I don't have a massive friends list. Compared to someone like Michael Arrington from Tech Crunch anyway who was overwhelmed by the whole affair before writing the below post.
