Rob Glaser, the founder of the newly established company SocialEyes, became famous when he started RealNetworks in 1994, after a long career at Microsoft. RealNetworks is the company behind RealPlayer and RealVideo.

SocialEyes will deliver an instant messaging and video chat service, that allows Facebook users to chat with multiple people at the same time. It will also be possible to chat with people who are not your friends on Facebook, but instead share common interest pages. Uers can also silence other people to hold private conversations and record video messages for people who are offline, so that they can watch the video later.

At the moment the service is only available in a free beta version.
