I read an article this morning about instant messaging. It gave the results of a poll that illustrated the age gap when using forms of online communication. Basically, it said that teenagers are favor IM-ing while adults prefer e-mail. I can guarantee you that none of my friends answered that survey. I can barely get any of them to use e-mail. Most of them have computers but they use them as glorified typewriters for resumes and reports. I would use IM if any of my friends did.
