Just wondering who all here uses Instant Messaging and if so what is your favorite IM service and IM client?
I use it occasionally - on AOL. But only with family. AOL is not my favorite, but that is what I happen to have.
Yes, I run Windows Live Messenger (WLM) all the time. My favorite is the one I can reach most of my family and friends on, and right now that's WLM. It does good VoIP and I like the sharing folders.
I use pidgin... I have accounts with yahoo, msn, aim, gtalk, and even myspace (for one friend that doesn't know any better)
i just use the windows live messenger don't really need any thing else
Windows Live Messenger - that's all anybody seems to have!
thats because it comes with windows
well, i suppose it does, but everyone like it anyways
ya i is pretty easy to use and i don't really use too much anyways so i don't really need any others ;)
whats ur email then?
can u get scott to send it to me (if he's reading!)
well if i gave to you now i might not be on for a while because i am at school and will not be home until later tonight. and even then i might not be on.
and that would be fine if scott sent it too you
I've been using Trillian forever, accounts on Gtalk, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, ICQ, and probably one or two others I have forgotten about.
Started using Pidgin yesterday (never chatted before)
i am wundering if there is a way in pidgin that i can see who is online easier like in w msger and still see all of your contacts
Pidgin - I have AIM, Yahoo, MSN and Google accounts.......oh yeah and the one Myspace account.
I used to use Trillian, the wife still does. That's only because i have never installed pidgin on her pc.
The only one ive ever used was AIM, and I still have my account but I forgot my username and password so I dont get on anymore (I should probably uninstall it), but most of the time I just talk to my friends on warcraft. (Yes, I play warcraft)
