Creating IM Bot Using IMified with PHP

Instant messaging (IM) is a form of real-time direct text-based communication between two or more people using personal computers or other devices, along with shared clients. The user's text is conveyed over a network, such as the Internet. More advanced instant messaging software clients also allow enhanced modes of communication, such as live voice or video calling.

IM bot is a bot program that uses instant messaging as an application interface. IM users can add the name of the IM bot to their buddy list. Because the bot uses artificial intelligence, the end user thinks that he is talking to a real person and can forget that he is actually just querying a database. Some IM bots are able to connect to outside databases
