every time you access the internet do you make it a habit to log in to YM? is it useful to you? for what... communication? finding dates? friends? just for fun... why do you prefer it and why do you prefer the others?

Oh yes, that is the first thing I do when I connect to my internet, is log on to yahoo messenger. I do because it takes me straight to my e-mail. I keep it on all day so I can see when I get my messages or whenever one of my friends get online. I coudn't live without it now, I love it.

I use instant messenger a lot. I usually log onto it every time I get online right away to see if any of my friends are online. I think it's great for keeping in touch with friends who don't live close to me. I actually met my husband through chatting online too! We weren't trying to meet people that way, but it just sort of happened since we started making friendly conversation and we fell for each other. hehe So I guess yahoo messenger is very important to me! lol

I don't really use it anymore. The only reason I had it at first was because my cousin was on it.

Well I used to use it so I could stay in contact with my friends out of state but then in October 2005 I went into a chatroom (Romance: 20s love) and started talking. Well this chick came over the mic calling me a hillbilly (which yes I do live in the country but I am not country). This guy came back and told her to leave me alone becasue she was talking country too. Well I started talking to that guy and we exchanged numbers. Yes I know that it was very dangerous. I lived in Georgia and he was in Texas due to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. We talked from October until January when he moved in with my mom and me. In November 2006 we got married and I am loving everyday of it. So now I use yahoo massenger to talk to my classmates and teachers.

Oh yeah, it has been a routine on my part to lg in to my YM every time I switch on my computer. And basically it's for communication purposes. YM is really helpful when you wanted to get in touch with some people close to you who are now in some far away places. I have a couple of good friends who are now working abroad and we still have that communication line open..and thanks to YM. Another thing, it also saves me a lot of money than calling them through my mobile phone.

Well, I us it pretty often because I have many friends using yahoo messenger ,but I have used a messenger software in the past called skype and it's making a lot of positive noise in the market.I am keen on trying it out and if they continue to keep it free then I'd love to replace my yahoo messenger with Skype.
