Convore – Group Instant Messaging

Conference calls are so 2010. Today’s modern meetings are all about utilizing technology to get more done in less time, which is where Convore comes into play. The group instant messaging system makes it easy for friends, colleagues, and teammates to chat online in real-time. Convore users can invite their friends to become a part of their private groups, or join public groups based around an interest in specific topics like music, TV, or technology.

Sign in with your Twitter or Facebook account to get started with Convore. If you’re joining for work-related reasons, then click “create new group” and invite your colleagues to jump in on the action. When new users sign on and join your group, they’ll be able to post messages in the chat area that anyone can respond to. Each group page shows a list of all the conversations going on. Click on a particular conversation to see a log of everything that’s been said. You can reply directly in regard to a specific comment or leave a new comment at the bottom of the thread. Comments show up instantly in a format that looks similar to an instant messaging log, and Convore tracks what’s being said even when you’re not online so you can quickly catch up on the conversation the next time you log on.

When you make a group private, other Convore users have to ask for approval before they can join and see what’s being said. Public groups, however, can be easily found by searching for specific keywords or browsing through categories. Join as many or as few groups as you want on Convore. For groups of friends and individuals looking for new ways to connect online, Convore offers limitless opportunities.
