If email is the electronic equivalent of letters, instant messaging (IM), a.k.a. chatting, is the electronic equivalent of phone conversations. It can be very useful if used properly, but also can be dangerous (on many levels) if used in an incorrect manner. In a previous post, I wrote about email etiquette, so now I list some of the things you should always remember when using instant messaging.

This is one of the most popular topics discussed over and over again. There are lots of websites out there that talk about email etiquette, and what you should or should not do when writing emails. In this post, I include the top 10 things that I think matter the most while writing an email (in no particular order). This is from a very personal perspective.
