Merge is an instant messaging client that focuses on social discovery. With Merge, we introduce the concept of a greeting. The problem is that a person has multiple ways and outlets to talk to friends but no way to easily start a conversation. Most people don’t just start talking to any random friend out of the blue, they go to talk to friends when they need something. Browsing a friends list isn’t going to encourage me to talk to any of them.

Greetings are semi-private messages you can send to your followers and, subsequently, their followers to meet new people. We also build off of the concept of a messenger to provide common tasks in the chat - including our example addon Pokemon.

Commands: /coyote - enable awesome colors /pokemon - a random pokemon
