Back in a more innocent age, a Facebook friend bore at least some resemblance to an actual friend: They were real people with real identities with whom one had some connection in real life.
But the online "friends" who populate Facebook are increasingly not who they say they are.
Since page is opened once and data (JSON) is downloaded, parsed, added to chat screen and marked as read it will show an empty page again as long as there's no new messages.
Possibly other questions similar to this one have been asked, but I think this would be something different to those that have been asked so far.
Can we create a chat app especially in PHP/My SQL/j Query/Apache without continuous requests to server i.e. I don't want to use Comet or Node JS, just want to know if it is possible to have a chat application that uses only AJAX to request Apache for new message using PHP.
Is there any way to send the request to all Gmail contacts? Now it contains [email protected], [email protected],[email protected] if you click on the dropdown in the chat box and click `add contact' you will get a invitations page where you can paste your list of emails (formatted as comma separated). Gmail has a feature that allows you to send bulk emails to a group of people versus individuals should send email.
This feature can save hours of having to type an email address in at a time.
