Dog-Fooding Ourselves on WeBuzz.IM

We are eating our own dog food everyday, using WeBuzz.IM in our daily network life. And we find some bugs, we love some features and want to add some more .

Avatar (or profile picture) is the main feature of Windows Live Messenger (MSN). As it is known, in Microsoft’s official messenger, we have to click on everyone’s icon to view the latest picture. It’s very inconvenient for us to catch up with friends’ updates. While, WeBuzz.IM shows all pictures by default. In this case, we won’t miss any new avatars. And we like to see those familiar avatars and would enjoy new avatars coming up now and then.

Everyone likes the notification way. Most time, we do not like to be disturbed. While on internet ,we always notify some blinking titles starting with “[“, “<”, “(“, or anything else. Such useless message is not welcome , especially in working time. Don’t be worry. WeBuzz.IM can provide you a “safety situation”—no disturbution.

For bugs, clicking on the scrollbars won’t activated the messenger client, a little confusion. IE 8.0 is not well supported yet. If there more than 2 messengers are open, it seems that no enough space is left for chatting … All these bugs may be fixed or may be improved in the future.

Any others bugs? Which features do you like? What new features do you like to see in the future updates? Please report bugs or make feature requests, or just leave us comments.

Visiting WeBuzz.IM by Proxy

It seems that someone use proxy like SneakyPass ( http://sneakypass.com ) to use WeBuzz.IM web Gtalk/MSN Messenger/Yahoo/AIM services. We guess that webuzz.im is blocked by your network or *.im domains is not accessible in your network.

We test WeBuzz.IM on SneakyPass, and everything is fine. So if you do have difficulties in accessing webuzz.im, you may try . But we still recommend you to visit WeBuzz.IM services by alternative URLs, which may work for you without any anonymous proxy.

By the way, if you have problems when using other proxies, please let us know. We would like to help you. Providing better instant messaging accessibility for our services is our goal.

Embed WeBuzz.IM in Your Website

About 6 months ago, we have a post talking about embeding izuz.net web IMs into other websites. At that time, we did not use the name “WeBuzz.IM” and did not make http://webuzz.im/ as the primary service site. And now we would like to update this kind of information for developers:

To embed WeBuzz.IM in your website is very simple, just add a SCRIPT element with src=”http://webuzz.im/im.js” into your HTML pages:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://webuzz.im/im.js"></script>

For example:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/>
<title>We Buzz Together @ WeBuzz.IM</title>
</head>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://webuzz.im/im.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Someone have reported that “http://webuzz.im/” may not be accessible in some country/network, you may replace http://webuzz.im/im.js with

  • http://izuz.net/im.js
  • http://uziz.net/im.js
  • http://demo.java2script.org/im.js
  • http://java2script.org/im.js

We will synchronize these scripts when we make updates.

We DO NOT recommend you to copy this im.js to your website and load your copy. As you may get out of date and WeBuzz.IM in your website may not be working. But if you do insist doing so, you can follow WeBuzz.IM @ http://twitter.com/webuzzim and subscribe this blog feed for latest updates and synchronize your im.js.

If you embedding WeBuzz.IM under URL with words “gtalk”, “msnlive”, “ymessenger” or “aim”, the specific messenger will be launched automatically when the page is loaded. For example, page http://###.###.com/gtalk.html will launch Google Talk automatically.

And we would like to hear your feedback and feature requests on integrating WeBuzz.IM into your websites. It would be kind for you to send us an email telling us that you are embedding WeBuzz.IM in your websites. We may link to you or notify you for our updates.
