    Default MSN vs ICQ vs AIM vs QQ vs ??

    i'm not sure if the topic has been debated but which one is better.

    The first chatting program i dl was ICQ cos that was the hot thing like 8yrs ago. But since the introduction of MSN, i used it since and havent changed.

    ive never used aim or QQ. It seems that in China, QQ is heaps popular than any other chat thing.

But supposedly it gives your computer viruses.....?

    u hvn't heard of ICQ before? wow - that's quite unbelievable. ICQ was real popular last time.

    I use both MSN & YM. both have their own unique features. can't really choose between them

    Yeah, I also use Skype because it works best and it is free to use live voice and works. In summary, in comparing chatting with people in China, "QQ" is, like the Chinese version of the American instant messenger "AIM". The similarities are one is pure Chinese characters and the other is English characters. As for the MSN, the widely known IM, all different people from other countries can use it.

    The Con's and Pro's of MSN messenger:

    Con's- It is not guaranteed it will always work because it does lock you out. I see many cases online people having long distance relationships fails on msn chatting back in forth. The solution, find a live mic messenger like skype, at most times it does works to reduce further problems.
    When chatting online it does not mean everyone knows English, although English is a neutral prodominate language to use. In reality, Chinese is the top language widely used. So, there are problems in this area.

    Pro's- It can be used anywhere you are located, home, work[if no firewall], school, etc. It is flexible, like your cellphone. Majority of everyone around the world has heard of MSN messenger or at least used it.

    My opinion, Skype has a override system to allow you to download it and bypass some firewalls at school. It helps when both Aim/MSN are completely disabled, as I have this problem at school. Thank for Skype, it allows me to keep onine contacts active.
