Instant Messaging Guide



The Basics
Much like E-mail, Instant Messaging (IM) has revolutionized the way we communicate. With just a few clicks and keystrokes, you can instantaneously talk with anyone around the world. Just download an IM client, sign up for a free account and you're on your way.
The most popular Instant Messaging clients are ICQ, AIM and MSN Messenger. These clients allow you to send text messages, files, images and movies to other users over the Internet.
Instant Messaging History
Since the early '90s, AOL has always had a form of Instant Messaging but it wasn't until 1996, when they introduced the Buddy List feature, that it really took off. In the same year, ICQ (I Seek You) burst onto the Internet scene and helped popularize Instant Messaging. Whereas AOL Instant Messaging was exclusive to AOL members, ICQ was free IM software available for download to anyone.
In 1997, AOL introduced AIM (AOL Instant Messenger), which allowed its members to talk with non-members for the first time. AIM eventually usurped ICQ as the prevalent IM client, and in 1998, AOL bought Mirablis (ICQ's creator), thus becoming the dominant player in Instant Messaging.
As the popularity of Instant Messaging grew, other IM clients like MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and a variety of smaller players eventually entered the mix. However, it's important to point out that there is no interoperability between the different IM clients. Each IM software uses its own proprietary system and network.
This lack of intermingling led to the so-called IM Client Wars. Microsoft's MSN Messenger tried to access the AIM network in 1999 to create a bridge between their users and the more numerous AOL and AIM members. AOL viewed it as a security risk and blocked MSN Messenger from its systems. The IM Client Wars has now settled down into an unsteady détente.
How to decide on an IM client
Since all IM clients are free, deciding on an Instant Messenger is easy: Just find out what IM client your friends and colleagues are using.
As we mentioned, there is no standard protocol for Instant Messaging, so you can only send messages to people who are using your IM client and services. For example, ICQ users can't send IMs to MSN users and vice versa. The notable exception is AIM: AIM users can communicate with AOL members.
So, first discover the prevalent IM client in use among friends or colleagues, or you may have to use all three or more just to be able to talk. Chances are you will have to use 2 or more IM clients to talk to everybody
