I don't exactly understand your question, but if your question is "my
small social network wants to add a chat server, what should I do?",
the answer is "use XMPP and your users will have numerous clients from
which to choose out of the box." If your question is "my small social
network has a proprietary chat interface, how do I use it with
Pidgin?", the answer is "you'll have to write a protocol plugin for
its protocol."


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
