    Default Do you still use messengers?

    Back in the days before Facebook we had AIM, MSN, ICQ, Yahoo, and maybe one other that never really mattered - which do you still use? MSN became Skype, so I am on their sometimes for Skype Dates, but beyond that I don't really log into any of them any more other than to keep the email active for porn subscriptions stuff.

    What about you nerds? Do you stay logged in and still chat with buddies on these instant messengers or have you moved on to texting/Facebook Messenger?

    Mostly Facebook messenger anymore. I never log into skype really. Not many people are on it like it used to be? that and i'm far too busy anymore. I don't like having skype on my phone as it kills my battery so FB messenger it is!

    I'm an awful millennial because I never really used things like MSN or AIM. Even now, the only one I use really is Facebook Messenger. I technically have Whatsapp but never use it.

    Honestly the best way to get hold of me is through Facebook because that pings rather often and I don't like using my phone!

    Yeah because I use one to talk to Mister Adequate, and... that's it, honestly. I imagine I'll probably dump it once he's over here permanently.

    I also use Tumblr's new built-in messenger to talk to tumblr friends quite a bit. But that's not really the same as an oldschol messenger.

    I use Skype a lot. I'm actually at the point where I trust Microsoft more than I trust Facebook.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I personally don't use messengers, but many companies still do to deliver items to other local businesses w/o having to rely on the postal service or carriers.

    I use Facebook messenger and whatsapp. I think I still have all my old msn logs saved somewhere though.

    I'm really into discord these days, it's everything I've ever wanted in a chat program.

    Skype - For chatting with DrAssenov & ROFLsquad
    WhatsApp / Facebook - For chatting to pretty much anyone
    AIM - For chatting with Samuraid
    mIRC - For chatting with #eoffers (although these days I don't really use it, I just leave it running)
    TeamSpeak - For voice chats

    I'd really recommend looking into Discord instead of TeamSpeak now

    Nah, TS works excellently for us, we don't have a reason to change. There would have to be something pretty wrong with TS for us to justify getting every FC member to get a new program, not to mention setting it up on the EoFF server.
