13 Top-Notch Web Services for Business and Communication

Instant Messages to Everyone

Meebo gets you in touch with buddies on all of the major instant messaging services, as well as on social networks.
If your friends are scattered across multiple IM platforms, get them all on the same page. Meebo connects to AIM, Facebook, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, MySpace, Windows Live, Yahoo, and more--all through a single Web interface that you can access from any of your PCs.

Where Are You Now?

On the Web or on your phone, Foursquare helps you find people and things near you in real time.

Simpler Social Networking

If you use any combination of Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, and Twitter, your online social life can be a mess. Sobees brings all of those sites together in one clean interface, so you can update your status across all four services at once and track all your friends without losing your mind.

Free Faxing

FaxZero lets you send faxes at no cost; the one trade-off is that an ad shows on the cover page.
You have little reason to maintain a dedicated fax machine if you don't rely on faxes every day, and even less reason to maintain an ongoing account with a premium online fax service. FaxZero lets you send faxes for free, as long as you don't mind an ad appearing on the cover page. Just enter your name and e-mail address plus the recipient's name and fax number, attach a document, and send it off. If you need to make a more professional impression, you can pay $2 via PayPal to send up to 15 pages with no ad on the cover page.

Group Text Messaging

Whether you're traveling with a group or you just need to keep your whole team connected, Tatango lets you type a text to one number, and then sends it out to an entire group. The service starts at $24 per month for small groups.
