The 'Daddy' of Online Messaging

AdvantagesNice new features, fun and easy to use

DisadvantagesNone that i can think of

"Microsoft has finally released MSN Messenger 7, its new free online chatting software which gives the online experience a new dimension. The new version is easily ten times better than the previous version, mainly because MSN Messenger 7 overflows with new features and in my opinion is more reliable. The former is especcially true if you install the upgrade called 'Messenger Plus' which, in my opinion adds so much to the chatting experience that it ..." Read review

MSN Messenger 7

AdvantagesTalk to your friends in real time, a lot of added features from version 6

DisadvantagesSome off the added features can be a pain!

"...start with you need an MSN username and password. These are easily obtainable from www.hotmail.com and clicking sign up. You will need to fill in a form that will take maybe 5-10 minutes to complete. After youve done this you will have a hotmail email address and a username and password to use with MSN messenger. You will then need to download the messenger. There seem to be a number of sites where you can do this but the official one is: www.messenger.msn.com. ..." Read review

"...of the original review as MSN 7 has updated itself now so if you would like to scroll down to where it says updated if you have already read :-)** MSN messenger is a software programme that is like Yahoo! Messenger, AOL messenger and very similar to the inbuilt Windows messenger you have on your computer, except MSN messenger is free, probably the most used messenger in the world because of its very extensive links to hotmail.com and also because ..."

Advantagesfree, easy to use, talk to friends anytime

Disadvantagesconversations can be taken the wrong way, slow at times

"...---------------------------------------- Logging on to MSN is one of the first things I do when I get in from college - it has now become part of my daily routine. What an easy way of contacting friends and family without having to pay a large phone bill. After only just finding out about and downloading the BETA (6.2)version, Microsoft have recently released a newer version - MSN Messenger 7. Downloading and installing is a doddle, with step ..."

I CAN ANNOY PEOPLE MORE THAN I ALREADY DO.

AdvantagesNONE OVER THE FORMER MESSENGERS.

DisadvantagesTOO COMMERCIAL, TOO BULKY.

"...anything is for free and MSN 7 Beta has given me answers that are so obvious that I feel a fool for not knowing better, and that my infancy on the Internet has gone, and perhaps I have now reached adulthood where one does not believe everything without question. Yes, there are some very good free downloads on the Internet and some of them are linked to advertising, giving you the change to purchase things. This is okay and part of the freebie download ..."

New annoying features!

Advantageskeep in contact with friends, winks, nudges, added emotions

Disadvantagesnone really

"...people who has never used MSN messenger, then I will briefly describe what it is. It is a way to chat to your friends online. You add contacts to your list by adding their email address; this means that you only have people that you have agreed to talk to on your list. This makes it much safer than chat rooms. Messenger 7 is not THAT much different from the last version of MSN. What is new is that you can sign on with your status as: online/ busy/ ..." Read review

MSN Messenger 7.0

AdvantagesVery clear

DisadvantagesNudges are annoying

"MSN Messenger 7.0 is an instant messaging service which you can download onto your computer to talk to your friends on. It is free and i think a seriously good idea. There are many features on MSN 7.0 such as the new nudges and winks which had been put on there since MSN 6. It is very clear and is easy to understand. You can get to grips with it within about 20 minutes. If you have a fast computer it is very quick to install and you can get ..." Read review

Beta then the rest?

Advantageskeep in touch with friends and family no matter where you are

Disadvantagescan create arguments

"MSN is the best way to keep in touch with friends and family no matter how near of far you may be from them. having had MSN 7 for about 6 months now, i must say that it is very unique compared to messenger services from AOL and Yahoo. You can add contacts from people that you know which means that you wont get any "strange" people that you dont know, and the best thing is that if you dont want to talk to people you can stop them from seeing you online ..."
