PAST Windows Live Messenger In the beginning, I used MSN, the previous version. MSN chat was part of my everyday life during my early high school days. I quickly became so attached to it – you could say I was really addicted. I would chat from 6 – 6:45 AM, then go to school, and after school, I would go straight to my room to chat until going to bed. I loved interacting with people I knew personally, and the ones I didn’t. I think it was because I used to be shy person so I felt MSN was a way to talk freely & be myself which I would have not in person. You could say I used to be a webtrovert.
PRESENT When I got involved with Facebook, I got detached from MSN. It’s the only networking site I use the most. I connect to it through my mobile and laptop. It helped me find my childhood friends and distant family members. The FB chat is a convenient way to interact with my friends and colleagues. To me, Facebook is more personal and it’s a way to stay in touch with people who are part of my life.
PRESENT Skype has become useful to me now because I get to instant message, and voice and video chat with my close family members and friends living abroad. It’s an easier way to work with group members on a university assignment if there’s a conflict in schedule to meet in person. A good alternative for an interview process. My internship interview was held through Skype and I was just as nervous as I was for all other interviews I’ve attended
FUTURE I have no doubt that instant messaging is going to keep on evolving and we’re going to be exposed to new ways of connecting with people, locally and internationally. I feel that it will be beyond our expectations and nothing like we’ve seen before. I think the future instant messaging will be faster and allow us to feel like we’re physically with the person we’re communicating with.
