So which one d'yall use?
P.S. Dien, how do you make a Poll? I clicked the Poll thing but it didn't give me any Options to let people choose from.
I don't use instant messaging software often. But it can be a useful tool, so I do use it from time to time with people I know... (Mainly with those who seem to refuse to write emails!)
When I do use IM, I use Trillian.
This is free software that lets you use multiple instant messaging programs simultaneously. That way, you don't really have to "choose" between them - instead, use them all!
Also, here's how to create a poll...
How To Create A Poll: You can create polls when you're starting a new thread. Click on the "New Thread" button. There, you can write your post to help introduce your poll. At the end of the page, you'll see a check box which says "Post a Poll", and you can select how many items you want in your poll. Check that box to post a poll. Then click the "Submit New Thread" button. The next pages will then prompt you to fill in the different options in your poll.
