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?
