Instant Messaging is Fun!


Instant messaging is a fun way to communicate with friends, family, and co-workers. And what better way to communicate online then by doing it with a hosted instant messaging program like Brosix? Hosted IM programs take out all the stress and worry of online communication so you can go back to focusing on the most important part of IM- talking with others (whether it be for fun or for business). 

Why is instant messaging so fun? Well, it is definitely hard to put a finger on. To me, I believe that instant messaging is fun because it gives you time to think about what you are going to say and the smileys and emoticons make communication more laidback and easy to do. When I was working full-time as a Marketing Coordinator in the corporate world, I loved the fact that instant messaging programs were allowed on our computers. It made it easy to ask a fellow co-worker how their birthday was while also asking another co-worker about a project that was due.

Maybe hosted instant messaging is so fun because it is so easy. Being able to talk to several people instantly at once (and in private conversations) is something that can only be done with instant messaging. You can’t do it on the phone, over e-mail, or even in person. 

So go ahead, get wild and crazy and go find yourself a hosted instant messaging program.  You’ll thank me!

Who Doesn’t Use IM?

In these modern times, it’s hard to find anyone who isn’t using email, internet, or some form of electronic communication. Instant messaging has come to to the forefront of digital and internet communcation and has revolutionized the way that America’s workers and organizations are collaborating together.

Instant messaging is a great way for the workers of America to come together and be able to continuously communicate throughout the day while remaining at their computers to work on projects or stay focused to work on deadlines. 

The use of the internet is basically a job requirement for most office-oriented jobs. And once you know how to use the internet, then using instant messaging is not too far behind. It is so easy to use and simple- anyone who knows how to type can use it! For employees and their managers who want to communicate without ever having to leave their desk, instant messaging can not only boost productivity, but can also help companies stay on the frontier of digital communication. 

Even if you do not want to spend money on providing instant messaging for your employees, there are free hosted and secure messaging programs that can still provide the solution you are looking for. One of these include Brosix Public, which is a secure communication program. Brosix is the sponsor of this blog and is dedicated to providing you options when choosing a hosted IM client provider.
