Alternatively if you're interested in a full featured web social platform running over the xmpp network, you could use Movim, if you use lightwitch.org it should have all the required features for it.
Just put your credentials into the login screen of the pod and you should be done.
There're six major public pods you could choose from:
- nl.movim.eu - Netherlands Pod
- fr.movim.eu - France Pod
- de.movim.eu - Germany Pod
- movim.se - Sweden Pod
- movim.feder8.ru - Russia Pod
- jp.mov.im - Japan Pod
Or you could pick some other from the full list here.
A small disclaimer when using Movim.
If you intend to use a Movim pod to access this service you're passing your login credentials to a service which will basically act as an intermediary between you and LW.Org IM while I'd say the public pods are relatively safe, We can't, nor We won't, guarantee the safety of the said credentials since they won't transit directly to this service but to an intermediary then to this service.
