Part IV: Getting Connected  >  Chatting with Friends

Chapter 15. Chatting with Friends

If you’ve never tried instant messaging, you’re in for a blast. With instant messaging, you can chat (by typing in messages) in real time with another user connected anywhere on the Internet. My niece—who lives in Cairo, Egypt—messages friends all over Europe for free. When my mother first tried instant messaging, she messaged me so often during the day that I couldn’t get anything done. Once you see how fun and useful it is to be instantly in touch, you’ll be addicted, too. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to:

  • Sign up for an account to use with instant messaging

  • Start and set up iChat

  • Add buddies to your list of contacts

  • Send and respond to messages

  • End a chat
