    It used to be:

    AIM for AM's/bhw friends.
    Yahoo/Gtalk for outsourcing work
    Msn for friends

    Now it's all Skype. I still prefer AIM though if anyone still used it :/

    MSN used to be something I used on a daily basis... Then Facebook came around and everyone stopped using MSN. Then they introduced Skype, and I think MSN switched to Skype or something? Anyways, I'll login to my MSN/Skype accounts from time to time, but I primarily use Facebook to connect with others. I find no one really uses the instant messagers anymore. But if I had to choose between MSN/Skype, I'd say Skype.

    I used to use MSN, but recently I started to use Skype. The reason I IM people is about in-game stuff, so I just PM or in-game party people.

    I'm using GTalk. I find GTalk more accessible because I'm always checking my Gmail account so there's no need for me to use or open other applications. I really find it a hassle to use multiple programs of similar purposes when I can just use one.

    Skype, although it sucks donkey dick. Might sound funny and I rarely use it still but AIM 7.5 is way better in my opinion. It's only about 10x easier to do everything, not to mention Skype's extremely questionable (at best) practices.
