I wonder....ICQ...........

Have not used these in so many years. Now Yahoo Messenger was used for some time until I notice all the people there were on Skype or other service. (Yep, even Skype is kind of dead)

Skype is still popular with single Filipino women who are seeking an American husband.

It is if you're over 55. Still trying to get a few friends to drop that stuff and maybe this will help speed up the process.
