Who are those brilliant chat owner programs? I would like to know those people behind, yahoo messenger chat programs, facebook, twitter, myspace and other social networking networks that involve video chats. This is very important for us users to be aware on the developer’s history and ability to do work because we trusted them with our personal information such as username and passwords.
Expecting some help, thank you.
