There are a lot of people who keep juggling between different IM clients to stay in touch with colleagues and friends. Their desktops are often cluttered with windows of different clients and notification popping up from everywhere. It can be one difficult task managing so many clients. Most of the users are forced to use different applications because the people they interact with use these programs.

Because essentially all of them are IM’s that lets you communicate through chat or video and voice calls. A better way is to find an Instant Messenger that supports multi-protocol feature which lets you connect with external IM networks. This ensures you have a single unified IM client on your desktop and at the same time communicate with users from different Instant Messengers. There are some issues of connectivity being broken to different IM networks because of updates. But if you’re using a reliable multi-protocol supported IM client than these issues can be minimized with regular updates from third-party multi-protocol IM’s.

So if you’re looking to be more productive and efficient in communicating through IM’s than it’s a good choice to invest in one that supports multi-protocol functionality, it surely won’t replace all the IM networks but will go a long way in clearing some clutter.
