ICQ, Ichat, & PAL Instant Paging Info

All of these programs are very similar in what they do & how they work. Most people are on ICQ; I use both ICQ & Ichat although I did try to use PAL, but I couldn't find anyone to try it out with.

ICQ is a communications program similar to Pow Wow. You can put in your friends' ICQ number & it will let you know whenever they are online for a personal chat. You can also do group chats & it works with standard e-mail phone software such as Net Meeting & Net Phone. To download, just scroll down to Download & follow the directions for downloading & installing it. You can do a search on ICQ for other homeschoolers.

Ichat Pager is similar to ICQ. You can use it to see if any of your friends are online & to start a chat with others. Choose Downloads & follow the online directions.
