Hi there. I dicided to open this discussion to know which are the programs you use daily to chat with other people. In my case, I use MSN Messenger to chat with friends, family... they're the ones I know better and some online friends I've met throught the years I have cable net. I've been always using mIRC since I got cable net to visit some channels where I have some 'virtual people' known if I can talk like this. When I'm in front of my pc (like right now) they are always turned on so I can reach other people and be reached by them almost immediatly. What about you?

I have quite a few instant messaging accounts. I have a YM account for personal use, a skype account for company use in my previous job, an X-IM account for my client's use in my current job, and a Gtalk account for a friend who requested me to get one coz she seldom uses YM.

I prefer msn messenger. it's nice, easy and famous. Everyone has an account on it! I can talk to all my friends and people that I need talk something important quickly. I know that are a lot of other instant messaging system better than msn messenger but they don't have the same tool or interface that msn menssenger has.

I usually choose yahoo messenger although I have MSN messenger as well, but I have no contacts there and its not user friendly. Yahoo messenger are easy to use,its user friendly features are something with I like most in that messenger. Its simple and you can get as many friends as you have. You can meet a lot of people and chat with different class of people by just going to their community.

you have friends that use all the different ones like AIM, YAHOO, and MSN, you're best off using like a universal IM, try download.com and look for one. I had one once and it was very helpful and took up less space . ICQ...I don't have it now because everyone seems to have Yahoo but I think ICQ is great. It has alot of options, wallpapers, just different things that I like. It's all a matter of preference and what you want with an IM program.

The messenger that I use the most is AIM, simply because most of my family and friends have it. I've used Yahoo in the past, but had a lot of problems with it. I've also used MSN, which I feel is a good instant messenger. My parents still use ICQ. I really wish I could get them to switch, but they are set in their ways, I guess.
