The challenge that comes now is to look forward to the technology and forms of communication that will be popular in a year or two.

Everything that is current, has been mastered and commercialized to a point of no customization.

If I had said ten years ago that MSN Messsenger would be dead and these 'dating' and alumni sites would be taking over, I would have been laughed at.

Well not to make myself look like a prophet, because I didn't say it.

MSN Messenger was killed by Bebo and MySpace,

MySpace and Bebo are being killed by Facebook.

Who's the Facebook killer?

Jase, I love your immortal trust!

To be entirely honest, I lost my passion for Messenger and my devotion to Microsoft products last year due to a combination of personal and professional circumstances.


Likewise, I lost my passion for Windows Live Messenger when I started using Adium, I never looked back.. If my contacts wanted to do Audio/ Video (Which is the only thing Adium lacks) I would find them on Skype.

That does not mean that Mess.be has to go on a major Hiatus..Now we are still talking about Messenger clients in general.. The main ones today are WLM, Skype AIM, Yahoo, ICQ *shrugs at the last client* but those are just the main ones! Think about the alternatives: Pidgin, iChat, Miranda, Adium, Trillian, Now.. Think about the Jabber clients out there.. Yep.. WAY TO MANY! Now what if Mess.be was about all messenger clients, and people seeking help with that current client? Wouldn't there be more discussions about various clients? Wouldn't the community open up More and more? Not to mention there would be many many talented staff, members & VIP's who would be able to answer any questions that people are having.

MSN/Windows Live Messenger is not dead.. The protocol is still 100% it's just the users are no longer interested in a bloated crappy client and have moved to better, simpler alternatives.. which also answers your next sentence; Bebo is Still alive & So is myspace (HAHAHAH Myspace) but the % of devoted users has dropped a large amount, Facebook has gained because it has listened to It's users, where as myspace has totally ripped off Facebook and has not come close to doing anything innovative themselves.

Who is the next Facebook Killer? you say? Diaspora msn_wink.gif

msn_surprised.gif Dwergs, good to see you msn_grin.gif . Pssst my name doesn't have an h in it msn_wink.gif . I totally agree with you Jase although the only other messenger client I've used is Yahoo but no one else had it so I didn't tend to bother with it. I no longer have it installed either. I have AIM but no account. It just came pre-installed on this laptop.

Facebook is good for sending the odd message to friends who you don't have messenger and I like noseying at people's photo's and just generally learning what they are up to these days. To actually have a conversation with someone though I prefer to use messenger. I've used the facebook IM a couple of times but I don't really like it.

I too just use WLM for its core functionality these days.

Good that you've deleted a ton of accounts Dwergs, there's no end of spam accounts but all I can do is suspend them. Some spam accounts however have made numerous posts.

Wow there are some people still here, and even something from the main man himself!

I do agree with what some of you are saying, make this a general messenger site, it should bring back some more popularity. Obviously it wont make it like the golden days again, but it will definitely make things more lively.

So hows everyone doing these days anyway?

How much do you want to bet that if Mess.be throw a huge promo image saying "We are back! & we bought our other messy Friends along for the ride" - Okay something along those lines will get the attention of almost every IM user in the world!

It's time to stop talking and really do something to bring this all back. Dizee, I am jolly good, thanks for asking. Just hanging around on Neowin & twitter these days. How are you?

That's a little contradictory ha ha. Apple seems to be the way to go at the moment though. It appears to be quiet in the Microsoft world. Either that or I'm in the dark about any goings on.

I am still around msn_happy.gif

Jesus. I don't think I've been to these forums since 2006. I miss the site dearly. I used to worship it 6ish years ago. I think this site helped spawn my love for orange. Even though I didn't post much, I read these forums dearly. I love you guys.
