Voted. I have used Face Time a couple of times in the past few months, but that's it. I haven't online "chatted" via IM for years. Lost interest.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Skype has been around for a couple of time now, so that's the one that is most used by my friends and me...hopefully more people will switch to Face Time that in my opinion is faster and better to use

The network I have used the longest and still use today is AIM from former owner AOL. 2nd is probably Yahoo and then GoogleTalk. Have the most friends probably on AIM and GoogleTalk but 2 or 3 close friends still use Yahoo.

Never even realized this poll was here...

The only IM I use on a regular basis is Skype.

Still AIM and Google Plus but Yahoo also for one close friend. Really old thread though. I remember taking the poll way back.

I use MSN, Facebook IM, Google Talk and Skype because my contacts are scattered throughout different systems. The Trillian IM client allows you to log into all of these, bar Skype which is coming soon on the Mac version. However, I find Facebook the most popular as nearly everybody I know is on there despite what other networks they are on.

I hate QQ. It's just money, money, and money.

However, I use skype, Google Talk and Facetime everyday.

For me, Facebook has nailed it. Everybody's there and to stay in contact I had to leave ICQ

I became a full time Mac user about a month ago, and up until that time, I was using Trillian Astra on my windows machine. I really liked having one client that would connect with multiple services, which Trillian did flawlessly. On OS X, I've found that Adium is pretty close. It will connect to all the major clients and so far has been very stable.
