Just wondering peoples view points regarding Instant Messaging and its relevance in the Facebook Era. Have you found with Smartphones, Facebook and unlimited texts that your using the Traditional Instant Messaging far less than you use to? Do you walk about and ask people for there 'MSN' or there 'AIM' anymore or is it just about adding them to Facebook? I say this because ever since I've had my Smartphone with WhatsApp, Facebook and SMS I find I'm not using IM as much, Infact I think I could delete 90% of my contacts as I only really talk to the same 5 people day in day out. Also over the past 6 months I've managed to cut my contact list in half as I just delete people I no longer talk to. Now my biggest question is, is this just me, or are others finding a similar situation?
