“Everyday we hear stories of people, from celebrities to the average

passed along to third parties without consent,” Stanton said. He added,

BigString IM users can send instant messages (IMs) that self-destruct
afterbeing sent. Additionally, IMs sent via BigString’s service cannot be
copied, logged or screen-printed.
BigString IM is a free advertising supported service available at
http://www.bigstring.com. It is available as a web version or as a free
plug-in for AOL’s AIM.
The patent-pending technology leaves no trail or copy of the IM on any
once the message self-destructs. The time for self-destruction is set by the
sender, and can be set to disappear in as little as a few seconds to over an
hour. The sender can also choose a number of visual effects for the
self-destruction. A message will disappear in real time simultaneously from
both the sending and receiving IM screens.
