Instant Messenger is a very popular internet tool, especially with
teens. I've read though that a number of organizations are using it for
"internal" communications.

Is your department using any "Instant Messenger" software? If you are I
would appreciate some feedback on the following couple of questions:

Do you feel its benefiting your department?

What software are you using? (aol, icq, msn...)

How did you decide upon that choice?

Did your department try alternative software?

Would you recommend it for other departments?

How secure is the software, organization/ personal wise?

Would you mind if others, within the University, knew your screen name?
