chatThese two ideas can be in conflict but instant messaging can help. In many cases Instant Messaging can be used to avoid long-distance telephone fees. Instant Messaging provides a chat facility that allows for more interactive exchange of messages than e-mail. In addition to the chat facility, Instant Messaging programs allow you to use your computer's microphone and speakers to talk to someone else anywhere on the Internet. You can replace expensive telephone fees with this free voice service.
