Fontself is a new Facebook application and stand alone website that allows users to create their own fonts, or even use their own handwriting, when chatting, using email or blogging. The app is available for email clients, Facebook, Yahoo, Myspace, Netlog, Blogger and in html format in many languages, including: English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish and more.
Once a Facebook user installs the app, there are dozens of fonts from which to choose during chat. The app only works, of course, if the user is chatting. Initiating a chat using Fontself immediately curtails the native Facebook chatting, but does post a link to the app so friends may join the user. Most of the fonts provided by Fontself include accompanying emoticons that match the style of the font. [continued…]
