When you log-on to your favorite Chat Software (Yahoo, MSN), do you log-on as invisible or do you log-on and let yourself be seen as available by your friends? Just Curious, SFC

I don't really have time for those sort of things, but when I used to use them, I only signed on as invisible when I was really busy, and just wanted to check something out quickly.

I always sign into msn offline mode, so i can just check whom is online and how many..Sometimes i may talk to someone in offline mode, as easier and so, not get rude interruptions of nudges, because most my contacts don't seem to understand the 'busy' or 'away' status lol But saying that, my msn is nearly always signed in (invisable), then when not reading/posting in mylot lol i may change my status to busy as i know i will always get many messages within a minute of being visible, then have no time for here -_-

as a matter of fact, yes I do sign-in as invisible whenever I login to my msn, yahoo..and gmail too. not sure why i do that hahaha...probably because sometimes i dont want people to see me when i am online. most of the time, after that i will change my status to online though.

LOL! I didn't know that was an option! So, I guess I don't sign in as invisible. It's ok though I don't mind talking with my friends.

It really depends on my mood and my location. If I'm at work I always sign in as invisible on yahoo and msn. At home I only sign in invisible/offline on msn if I dont want to talk everyone but a specific person. Yahoo I tend to sign in as invisible to everyone but my boyfriend and select who i want to appear to. Those that I talk to often already know I'm really there not not there.

Muelitz,i always logon as invisible,i don't know why,but i think it's really something with my character,I will logon almost everyday to see whether there's someone whom i want to talk with,if not,i will still be invisible,if there's several,i will be on line, and chat with them in good mood.

Yes I do it for my co-workers so they wouldn't know that I'm already in the office.

I have both my chat softwares to sign me on as invisible. That way I can see who is online and who I want to chat with. I use Yahoo IM mostly to be notified when I get new Yahoo email. That is almost always invisible. To chat, I use MySpace because I have a couple real good friends on there. I always sign on invisible and change it if I decide I want to chat. So Muelitz, do you sign in invisible and what chatware do you use? Char :-)

whenever i feel like i don't want to be disturbed but i am waiting for someone to login so i can message them, that's when i login as invisible. but most of the time, i login visible. i just change my status to Busy so that if it's not so important, they won't disturb me :)

I hardly ever sign in to messengers anymore, but when I do, yes, I sign in as invisble. I usually don't like to be interrupted by messages when I'm busy doing something else. And another reason is, I always forget to sign out, and my computer is always on, so even when I'm sleeping it looks like I'm online if I'm not invisible.
