Confessions Of An IM Junky

from the it's-addictive... dept

A reporter for ZD confesses about his instant messaging addiction. I’m sure this will sound familiar to a number of you. To be honest, I don’t remember how I survived prior to IM. It has turned out to be very useful to me for work, as well as staying in close touch with friends and family. I’ll admit that I was skeptical before I started using it as well, but it is definitely one of the most useful tools I use. I wonder if people are going to have to perform an intervention on me as well. Of course, almost all of my close friends use it as well, so, I don’t know who they’d get to do the intervention.
