Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Instant Messengers (IMs) have become part and parcel of our lives ever since the birth of the much-loved ICQ (I Seek You) program in 1996. It allowed people to communicate in a very direct manner without going through the hassle of waiting for responses from emails. Following the success of ICQ, came Window Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger (Beta) and AOL's AIM. Even the almost 2 decade’s old Internet Relay Chat (IRC) still remains popular amongst chatters worldwide.

There remains a problem with these IMs as friends and family members often connected to different networks. To install all the chatting programs is a tedious job and will eventually drain the limited resources of the computer. Thus, a program has been specially created for the Malaysians inbound as well as outbound to minimize their headaches on the problem.

Welcome Malaysia’s first ever creation, ShoutOut - Malaysian Bloggers United. This project is the brainchild of two young Malaysians from Penang, Lasker and Elise. Having launched in April 2006, ShoutOut presently has over 62,000 shouts with an average of 140 shouts per day and it is gaining momentum real fast. Its shouters consist of some Malaysians staying abroad too.


  1. It is LIVE.
  2. User friendly and hassle free installation.
  3. Can be easily customized to suit your likings.
  4. Generated HTML coding can be placed anywhere in any blogs or websites of your choice.
  5. Gathers all Malaysian bloggers under one roof.
  6. Cute Butterfly and Panda icon for both male and female shouters when you reach certain shout level or rank.
  7. Easy to upload photograph with captions and show it LIVE.
  8. Everyone who has installed the program will see the chat LIVE in their site as well as in other sites which has this program. So you can chat while you blog hop.
  9. Get you connected to all the local and overseas Malaysians.
  10. Nice Smileys can be added into conversation.
  11. Easy track back of chats through the History folder based on time periods and dates.
  12. Fun facts about the shouters’ statistics
  13. News of what’s happening within the shouter members.
  14. News on what’s going on in Malaysia in What’s Next.
  15. Ability to still continue chatting when other IMs are down.

Presently, ShoutOut is still relying on word of mouth advertising and recommendation by its members. ShoutOut is a Non-Earning Website and joining is FREE. ShoutOut has future plans looking for advertisers. Why not join ShoutOut today and be part of the big family?
