IM addiction

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Hi everyone,

Well I think this is my first thread here!

I'm just wonder how many of us are addicted to instant messaging? Usually the first thing I do when I start up my Mac or wake it up is log into MSN and iChat. Recently it's been brought to my attention that I'm not as efficient or productive as I could be, and I think a big problem is that I'm forever having superfluous conversations with people, or being interrupted by "how r u?" messages jumping up from nowhere.

So today I decided to stop cold. I closed iChat and MSN and removed them from the Dock. I've got soo much done today! However, while I'm getting on with word in Word and other applications, I keep looking down at the Dock to see if anyone has sent me an IM.

Anyone else think they spend too much time on IM?

    I'm old skool. I'm not much into IM and text messaging is useful but prefer actual phone conversations, or since I am a fan of the written word, well-worded eMails.

    IM'ing is like so abstract.

    I am however, very hooked on AppleInsider. Let's just say I'm a poster formerly known as ....... I don't however hang out in any other forums.

    I'm more bored with Internet mostly, it swaps and moves. Excited about Apple, but generally InternetBoredomSyndrome with the rest of the stuff.

    I started a blog as an online journal to rant since AI forums not always best place for that.
