We are interesting in chatting statistics:

1. 4.14% MSN Messenger
2. 1.79% Skype
3. 1.53% Adium

5. 0.82% Pidgin
6. 0.52% iChat
7. 0.49% Yahoo Messenger
8. 0.41% AOL Instant Messenger

It seems that MSN wins the IM battle by this time.

And by RescueTime’s data, report said that users spent 44.6% of their time using communication services. Here is the list:

1. 44.63% Communication/Chat
2. 24.43% Office
3. 11.49% Media
4. 8.07% Information
5. 6.87% Design + Development
6. 1.48% Games
7. 3.o3% Everything Else

Well, online communication or chatting matters a lot to most users.

O, BTW: It seems AIM is less popular than other IM services in chatting battle, so less visitors will use izuz.net’s newly-provided web AIM service? OK, izuz.net’s web MSN Live Messenger should be updated with new features (last update was Aug, 2007), as it is the leading IM services. And izuz.net will also add its own web Yahoo! Messenger in coming days.
