    dtoiddisco Internet Chinwagging: How u do?

    Do people still use instant messengers these days or does everyone just stick to Facebook/Twitter? I can't remember the last time I used MSN/AIM/YIM. Are they still even popular?

    I only use Skype to chat to my family in England and lurk the Skypetoid chat. My internet social interaction is pretty much done through Facebook, LiveJournal and forums. I never have one-on-one private conversations with people anymore. I don't really know why to be honest, but as no one shows much interest in chatting to me outside of these places (~looooser~) I just don't bother with the IM clients anymore.

    So what do you guys use?

    I still use Yahoo IM, just to talk to ONE person I played WoW with for years. Aside from that it's just skype, which I'm not on enough. I'll use facebook though, when I'm on it.

    I've been using the Facebook chat/im/whatever it is with Dig and it works alright, I guess. I'm kind of old-school though, and would rather just use phones.

    Also Queenie, you have the best accent ever.

    Most of my chatting with people takes place in person. However when not in person I use Facebook. I don't even use phones, I don't like texting often or calling people. Dunno why, I only use phones to meet up or arrange/settle things.

    I did use Facetime twice though. Once was during a lecture at school and I flashed my laptop's camera towards the professor to "quietly" say I can't talk. (That was to my dad and brother too.)

    I sat in the front row.

    (Used to use AIM and XFire)

    Skype for the Skypetoid chat, Facebook though I don't do much messaging myself.

    Text messages for me mostly.

    I used to use MSN a lot, and AIM a little bit, but then everybody I knew pretty much just stopped coming on so I did too. Now I occasionally use facebook to chat, twitter, forums. Don't really do much one-on-one stuff these days.

    I always prefer texting. Or emails. Back in the day it was primarily MSN. But these days it's either Skype or Facebook.
