This was clearly inspired from the facebook thread. Now while I do have a facebook (which I only give out to people I trust), I also have instant messengers too. Because I've ended friendships due to issues or deleted others after no activity in recent years, I have less and less people to talk to.

I'm also iffy on talking to anyone here...cuz more often than not I've already seen the number of indiviuals that'll just give me a hard time anyway.

The main messenger I use is AIM. Then there's WLM (or MSN as some people still call it), YIM is rarely used. I have no one at all on Skype anymore. Then there's the people on facebook..which I can use AIM (you can also othr other messengers wiht it too) to talk to.

So what do you use if you're not on facebook?

(and if you want my screen name...well you'll have to PM me and hope that I can trust you enough)

I use Skype, since pretty much all of my friends are on there. Barely even use the FB chat anymore.

The only people I have on my MSN are either
A. Really Close Friends
or
B. People that I chat with on IRC

I don't have facebook but I use AIM (makaveli plaaya) and QQ (I forget my # for that).

If you want my QQ ask me because i'm not concerned about trust or whatever.

I don't use instant messengers, not much use for me.
I have a skype that I use daily to talk to my best friend.
I use facebook as my only method of getting in contact with the majority of friends and family that don't live here. A select few I text or email, and even fewer call.

No trust issues, just anxiety regarding social situations.

I kinda feel the same way now....considering the number of enemies outnumber the number of friends I STILL have. Don't get me started on that subject. It's just...I'm different and I have trouble with some people and...it's too complex to explain in words. Let's just say, don't expect everyone...even if they're in your age group, to be into the same things, or know what's popular and what isn't, nor your definition of what is and isn't "normal".

Normal? There's no such thing as normal. Everyone has a unique life experience that makes them different in varying degrees, and 'acceptable' is regional.

I have AIM, Skype, WLM, have FB Chat and occasionally use Jabber and Google Talk too... but I don't really use any of them consistently. I use IRC a bit more, but not a whole lot of people use it, fewer know my server / username, and fewer still do I talk to regularly there...

I usually talk to people via e-mail, text, or cellphone. As with most, and for at least some measure of personal security, I don't freely give out my contact info unless asked and I trust them a little.

It's called Texting o__o
Does that count?
I barely go on msn, facebook, or skype. It gets boring after you hit a certain age. When I was 13-17 MSN was my life. =___=;

Naah... Used to. Got bored of it. I don't use facebook, blog, IM, texting, and I rarely use e-mail. Heh. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I think I prefer speaking to someone face to face.

Strangely enough, Crunchyroll is probably the one electronic-communication source that I use most often. I only use my e-mail addresses for online shopping, really.
