Tell A Friend is a new JavaScript based widget for blogs and websites that will allow site visitors to send a link of the current web page to their friends via email or through IM like Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, etc.

Your visitors can pull a list of their friends who are currently online on Gtalk or AOL and directly send them a link of the current page. Alternatively, they may select one or more contacts from their address books inside Gmail, Yahoo! or Live Hotmail and send them a message with a link to the current page.
