Qvaq is an easy to use tool for online discussions in real-time. It's a place where users can create and join groups to discuss various topics with each other. Instead of following people, you follow topics.
You can join and create as many groups as you want to, both public and private ones, and you can chat privately one-on-one with other members.
Here is a short video introduction to Qvaq:

Something missing? Have ideas for features you would like to see added? We love to hear about it! Please post your thoughts in the Qvaq group.
Yes, but it's currently closed due to an OAuth upgrade. It will soon be back up. Please contact us if you want to be informed when the API is up again.
Building Qvaq is a steady ongoing process that was initiated by Martin Lindkvist and Robert Birming from Stockholm, Sweden in May 2009.
The site was officially launched to the world on September 9, 2010.
Martin and Robert, who are still developing Qvaq on their own and without any funding, have been building and running websites, blogs and web apps since the late 90s. Today they own a business in this field.
