Chapter 17. iChat AV and Bonjour > Create a Buddy List

Create a Buddy List

No matter what kind of chat you plan to do (text, audio, or video), the first thing you need to do is create a Buddy List. If you plan to chat often with certain people, add them to your Buddy List so you can easily see when they're online, and with the click of a button you can start a chat or send a file.

This is a typical Buddy List. The people in the list that have a green orb next to their names are online and you can start a chat with them.An amber orb means the buddy is online, but his computer is idle and the AIM service hasn't diconnected him yet.A red orb means the buddy is away or doesn't want to be disturbed, but is online.The dimmed buddies at the bottom of the list are offline and unavailable.
