Instant messaging was the quickest way to talk to someone back in the 1990′s. As technology progressed and social media emerged, instant messages slowly became all but obsolete. Text messaging slowly phased out the IM, or so people thought.
Instant messaging is making a comeback and especially in the business world.
Not too long ago, companies would have to schedule meetings and possibly wait days or weeks to get a project in order. A meeting could be scheduled with employees within the same office or with clients within a close proximity, but those in other states or countries would have to be sent an email with the project information attached and then several emails later a decision would be made.
Not so in today’s world. With the re-emergence of the instant message, companies can send meeting and project information to everyone involved with one click. Photos and graphs can be attached and viewed instantly and a constant conversation can take place immediately. Larger companies can also be provided with security using Enterprise Instant Messaging. Several larger providers of IM services offer this secure option. Smaller business can also benefit from consumer based IM solutions. These are less expensive and are idea for small business. Whatever need a company has, instant messaging can help.

Are you familiar with the unspoken rules of netiquette? Most people make a few innocent mistakes when instant messaging, and it winds up escalating into bigger issue than it has to be. By learning a few simple do’s and don’ts regarding instant messaging, you can avoid inadvertently offending a friend or coworker in the long run.
Typing in all capital letters is one of the cardinal sins of instant messaging. On the internet, capital letters signify shouting, and sending a message in all capital letters not only can offend the recipient, but it can make you seem utterly foolish. Imagine a person who shouts incessantly while engaging in conversation. That’s you when you type exclusively capital letters.
Nothing can aggravate another person more than having a text conversation, only for the other person to abruptly stop responding. Imagine approaching your best friend and striking up a conversation, only for him or her to walk away mid sentence. That’s what it’s like when you fail to respond to a message.
Many text based messaging systems have a system of text-based smiley faces, or emoticons available. A well placed emoticon now and then can do wonders to convey one’s emotions, but excessive emoticons serve to be nothing but a nuisance. Picture a person who does nothing but go around grinning from ear to ear, seems irritating, doesn’t it?
