What is instant messaging
What is Instant Messaging

  • Private Messaging – unless you want to share it

  • Uses a ‘client’ program e.g. MSN Messenger

  • Uses ‘Presence Information’ to inform you who is online

  • IM developed from proper real-time typing (where typos and corrections were seen by the recipient) – like a telephone conversation, to only seeing the last line when a new one is started like an exchange of letters – more like e-mail

  • Status messages can also be set telling communication group where you are /when you will be online
