Well? Everyone these days seems to be using google chat or facebook chat? I kind of still like AIM and having a separate client for it. I dunno, I know fb chat gets kind of wonky and says people have signed out when they haven't or I have signed out when I am clearly still online. And google chat I have used a few times and there are some weird hiccups with that as well. I dunno, AIM and MSN used to be pretty flawless unless the whole system was down, otherwise, they were rock solid. Well, anyone who wants to add me; aim or msn, its; llamaplaywithme llamaplaywithme@hotmail.com

Yeah, but wasn't xfire even kind of going out? I thought it was pretty awesome back in the day, but now people use use steam chat for that stuff I guess. I dunno, I guess it depends how old you are. If you are under like 20 atm, you probably didn't get that AIM/MSN were like the big thing.

I still use MSN messenger daily. I think it's a lot better than AIM, and it allows me to talk to people on facebook. Using the Facebook messenger from the browser is painful.

Most of my friends haven't transferred to gmail, and I don't think they will.

Just curious- what do you kids in the US use for chat now? Google chat and Facebook? My students keep asking me because everyone (and I do mean everyone) uses QQ in China, but I have no idea what anyone in the US uses anymore. When I left, AIM was still popular.

...Uhhh... maybe like 10 or more years ago. Honestly skype and steam are way better, unless they've updated AIM/MSN in the past 10 years :P

Edit: MSN was like for Windows 95 wasn't it? lolz

Wow it's been quite some years and as none of my friends really like to use them I've kind of forgotten that the applications even exist.

I still use it. It works just fine for me, and I'm too lazy to try another program.

I'm on AIM right now. :P I still go on it every night. Facebook is too wonky for me and I don't always want to talk to everyone that I'm Facebook friends with.
