I use the Yahoo IM all the time, and I love it! What is cool (although I haven't done it yet) is that if you have a microphone on your computer, you can live chat with another Yahoo member...just like a phone call. I have friends overseas, and they do that with other friends here in the US...nice to do instead of springing for a phone card.
I'm not to crazy about the chat rooms that are used on the Yahoo...sometimes there is just too many people in the rooms and it's hard to find a good chat buddy...but once you do, the IM is great..I love it (plus a cam is nice to have too, add that to the microphone and it's a cool way to chat). I know that in the profile section here on FordMuscle, they have a place to put your Yahoo ID for IM as well, so it's almost as easy as contacting them through the E-mail...as long as they are online and signed on.
