MSN Messenger allows you talk online and in real-time with friends and family! Use it on any shared computer - at school, at work, at a friend's house, wherever you want. The instant messaging is very quick (it is instant after all) and lets you send messages to friends and family and they see it within seconds. There is the Windows Messenger which does not allow you to send winks, emotions, backgrounds or send voice messages. But it does allow you to use web cam, little still pictures and messages. This is a simple version. MSN however allows the user to use all of the features mentioned above as well as well as lots of others!
