QVAC is a new instant group chat service which aims to make it uber simple to set up and chat in groups. Yesterday’s introduction of the new Groups feature in Facebook shows that there’s a demand for more contextual conversations, and I like the simplicity of this service a lot.
You can set up private or public groups for any topic you like, and invite your friends to hook up instantly and there’s a private messaging feature built in if you want to have a quiet word in someone’s ear. It’s all nice and simple, and easy to understand, but as with everything like this it really needs traction to make it work, more people equals a better experience all round. Definitely worth checking out though, even if you’re a Facebook user (don’t want them to own the whole world, now do we?)
Qvaq is an easy to use tool for online discussions in real-time. It’s a place where users can create and join groups to discuss various topics with each other. Instead of following people, you follow topics. You can join and create as many groups as you want to, both public and private ones, and you can chat privately one-on-one with other members.
