    I like to use YIM for typing back and forth and sharing picture slideshows. I also use it for voice chat. It's been very erratic for voice chatting and with some people, I can't share pics.

    I use Skype for voice chat and for web camming and love it's clarity and reliability but miss the slideshow feature that YIM has. Yes, you can send pics, but you have to save them to your 'puter, something I don't like to do.

    I wish I could find a program that was the best of both worlds.

    So, for those of you that socialize online, what do you use and why?

    Re: What program do you use to socialize onine with?

    Anymore, I am just using my BlackBerry. It's much easier because I can keep all of the messengers with me. I use YIM, WLM, Google Talk, and BlackBerry messenger, just because I have friends scattered across all of them.;)

    You may have an interest in checking out Pidgin, if you like to use more than one IM client. I think it pretty much covers them all, similar to what used to be called Trillian, but open source and free.:D

    Pidgin had limited capabilities last time I checked. I wouldn't allow anything but text. That was a while back though.

    Last time I remember trying Pidgin, it had actually evolved quite a bit from the text only client. Once the cable company comes to set up my internet, and I get my system all reassembled (water cooling setup wouldn't fit in the box:p), I will give it another try.

    I used to use Gaim till it turned into Pidgin, then there was a security leek with pidgin so I went to Trillion. I like it, not as user friendly, but I can sign into everything at once.

    I MUCH prefer Skype for any voice/video chatting.

    Plus I can make calls to all my sexy Aussie friends and listen to them without paying out the ass for a phone call! ^_^

    My edit button wasn't working. I blame the BlackBerry! Thanks for fixing that, Rocker.:tup

    They do call it the land down under for a reason, and I don't think it has anything to do with the geographic location.:lol

    She is asking about programs like YIM, Skype, etc. Not websites.
