I think a majority of Chinese people use QQ for chat.Even a pupil have a QQ username.We are accustomed to use QQ for chatting online.Mose of my friends have at least one QQ username.I think it is convenient for use communicate with each other.At the same time,a small part of people use other software like MSN,ICQ,SKYPE and so on for chat.I believe there exist one prevalent chatting software in your countries.Can you show me which one do you use or prevalent in your countries????

In India, mostly used Chat software is of Yahoo! It is very much used by almost all students, officials, technical people and even business people to get in touch with personal friends. In an estimate, Indians who know how to use computers always start with a yahoo ID and keep it for long long time. Next Messenger I can think of is Skype even though surprising. Most business people use it for their business purposes for the features and quality of features it offers.

Yes! Yahoo Messenger is free and can be downloaded from Yahoo site. Once It is installed on your computer and you have a yahoo id, you can start using it.

YM is not that bad, when you have email from Yahoo, you can also use your user name and password there to access YM! It's to easy to use I guess, that's why it is used by so many ^_~

msn - msn is one of the popular chatting software
I am from China. I know that QQ is a popular software in China. But I still prefer to use MSN because no more strangers will bother me if I use MSN. If I want to make a PC-phone call, then I will use Skype. I love China

I used Yahoo Messenger for chatting.. I think most people here in our country and also in other country used this kind of software for chatting.. Well, Yahoo Messenger is one of the good software that I used since most of my chatmates and my friends were using yahoo messengers also.. It is is to connect to other people, friends and family if you choose the same software, I guess... I also tried other software like MSN and Skype but still I prefer to used the Yahoo Messenger than those other I've mentioned...

I think most people in the US have aim. There are various different chat software like skype and yahoo as well, it honestly depends on where you live and your preferences. I like aim a lot because most of my friends have it and it is very easy to use and download. I have not had the greatest experience with yahoo and MSN, but I do not think that there is that much of a difference. Good luck!
