online chat

does anyone post-college actually still use an online chat client with any regularity? in high school i used AIM occasionally, only because my parents only had dial up internet (remember that!?). college was ridiculous. there were actually many times i would chat with my room mate behind me online rather than turning around and speaking. plus, it was a great messaging service to see if friends down the hall wanted to go to dinner.

the past six months or so, probably 98% of the online conversations i’ve had have been with my wife over Google chat. that’s it. between texting, this blog, and now twitter, i just don’t use online chat anymore.

anyone else in the same boat?

    I do use the client Userplane, even though it’s a beast. This chat client that allows for permanent rooms. There’s a big community of people behind the podcast Tiki Bar TV, and that’s where everyone seems to converge on some Friday and Saturday nights. It has a video/audio capabilities which make for interesting conversations with people all over the world. Considering on some nights there are 15 -20 people from across the US and Canada and it’s fun when some of our friends from England or Australia join us too.

    Other than that I think most ‘one on one’ chat clients like AIM, MSN Messenger and the like are a little outdated. I wonder how the Facebook messaging service is faring on their site?
