In a word of rapid-fire Facebook Status updates, texts and Tweets, it’s easy to forget about the resilience of IM. Yes, Instant Messaging. Remember that? It’s the thing which first gave HR reps and productivity experts a headache in the 90’s but has managed to survive as a vital communication tool.
Why? No doubt the ability to chat from virtually any phone, PDA or blackberry. IDEAL if you’re keeping the conversation away from the ‘rents, boss or teacher. Pocket convos anyone?
