Communicating in 2.0
I've used IMing for quite a while to communicate with my daughters while they were at college and during their study abroad time. This system was very helpful this year as one of my daughters spent 6 months out of the country and phone charges were outrageous! While it's good to hear someone's voice, a text conversation is a great way to keep in touch.
Twitter was a new twist on the IM concept. I'm not sure how I would use it as I don't have support for texting on my phone at this time (too expensive and I'd rather speak to the person).
Thanks for the exposure to all these tools. There's just too many to take advantage of!
