Posting With IM Bots

Page history last edited by Ping.fm 13 years, 3 months ago

We're pretty certain if you're online, you're probably using some form of IM client.  Lucky for you, we have an assortment of bots that allow you to ping messages straight from an IM window.


We currently support AIM, GTalk / Jabber, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and Skype


Setup can be done in three simple steps:


  • Add the desired platform bot to your IM client:
    • AIM: pingfm
    • GTalk / Jabber.org: pingbot@bots.ping.fm
    • Other Jabber servers: pingdotfm@gmail.com
    • Yahoo Messenger: pingdotfm@yahoo.com
    • Windows Live Messenger: pingdotfm@live.com
    • Skype: Search for "pingdotfm" in the "Add a Contact" wizard



  • Send your verification code TO the bot you added.  Verification codes are formatted like verify-abcdef0123456789


If all goes well, the bot will respond with "Thanks! Your Ping.fm account is now set up to post messages through [SERVICE].  Send me a message any time and I'll post it for you."


If you didnt receive a confirmation message, check your settings on Ping.fm and try sending the verification code again.
