Question, do I have to be a current AIM user to qualify for the study, or will any IM do?
Hi, yes, you need to be a current user of AIM (i.e. chat on the AIM network). However, we only need one buddy in your group to be using Windows XP, and the Windows AIM client. The other buddies may use that or other clients (e.g. Adium for Mac, iChat, GTalk) as long as you chat with your AIM screen names on the AIM network.
