Week 9: Instant Messaging
I use instant messaging for a variety of reasons and through several accounts. I use Meebo to help manage them and we use Meebo in Reference for our virtual reference desk with the widget on several of the library's web pages. I also use instant messaging that is built into Blackboard to talk with students and colleagues and have been recently using the IM in Facebook to reconnect with old friends. It is nice to be able to talk to people without the expense of calling. Also, you can talk with multiple people at one time.
