Tired of wandering cyberspace all alone?

Give yourself a presence on the web using weblin, software that allows people browsing on the same Web page to see and communicate with each other.

Apparently, having a weblin allows you to communicate with the different people you run in to while on your favorite sites, thus enriching the web surfing experience.

According to the Web site, weblins can "help people to improve their virtual lives" and "secure their presence on the Web."

The free software allows you to choose an animated weblin character that "looks like you, or looks how you would like to appear."

Your weblin includes a public profile and "speaks" to other weblins using good old-fashioned cartoon-style speech bubbles.

A weblin of few words? You can also rely on body language, including waves, smiles, frowns and evening a little dancing.

If you're no longer interested in chatting to someone's weblin you can choose to "ignore" them, thus returning them and their contributions to the black hole of Internet invisibility.
