Google Talk is an instant messaging client by Google with a small but devoted following of users. Just about anyone within the social media and tech realm could tell you great things about Google Talk and a lot of popular services support the use of Google Talk as a Jabber client. If you've been looking for a way to connect with more Google Talk users, especially those in your area, then head to GTalk Profile.
Find More Users on Google Talk
Google Talk is probably one of the few messaging clients that doesn't have a way for you to interact with other Google Talk users unless you know their email address. GTalk Profile provides the perfect solution to this problem. Using Google Maps, GTalk Profile allows users to plot where they are on a map and also find other users around the world. Simply type your city and state into the search box and GTalk Profile will provide you with a list of users near you along with a description of each user. Clicking on a name takes you to a profile page where you'll find a longer description, photos, interests, location, and the option to request a user's Google Talk information.
Sign Up for GTalk Profile
Currently the most active countries seem to be Europe, Africa and South America. The United States is the least active country on GTalk Profile. Hopefully that will change soon. GTalk Profile is a great way to expand your Google contacts, though we'd be careful about accepting any and every request on this service.
