Hello,

I recently launched a website and in the Contact Us section I have a lot of ways for people to contact me. There are buttons for Skype, Google Talk, MSN, Yahoo, and AIM for example. To complete the contact information I'd like to have a button for people to contact me via iMessage. I know I can simply put something such as "Contact me via iMessage" and then put my ID behind it but I'd like something as simple as a button where they can click on it and then it'll bring up their Messages app on their iOS device or on their Mac so that they can start typing a message to me.

Is there any type of button such as this available?

Don't think so, since iMessage is proprietary and Apple doesn't have any public iCloud APIs at all (although I wish they did).
