Instant messaging has been the “in” thing of the century. Ever since the advent of AOL instant messenger in the early 1990’s where instant messaging became an instant hit ( see what I did there? Tots amaze! (that’s the new hip language, from what I collect)) Needless to say we have come far and beyond from the days of AOL messenger. Services like WhatsApp and Skype have now managed to completely turn the messenger game on its head and made it something so easily accessible and even easier to operate that nearly everyone today uses IM services of some kind. I kid you not, even my neighbors 6-year-old has her own phone with WhatsApp, just for emergencies, her parents say. And I understand, you never know when she might run out of crayons or chocolate milk.
