I remember how back in the day the very first “social media” interaction I had was through AOL Instant Messenger and the Chatroom feature. Now looking back on it I hardly ever use it anymore. This article on LifeHacker caught my eye. Share your methods in a comment below. Do you even use IM anymore???
Do You Care About Instant Messaging Anymore?
Now that we have SMS and Facebook, are the old instant messaging methods becoming obsolete? We recently posted power-up guides for Pidgin and Adium that were of little interest to most people despite being the most popular chat clients on their respective platforms. It seems that they just may not matter a whole lot anymore. So, we want to know: how are you communicating quickly these days? Are you still using traditional IM clients on the desktop, have you relegated that task to the web, or is it something else entirely?
