Instant Messaging

Instant messaging refers to the capability to send an immediate, text-based message to another user on a computer network. Unlike e-mail messages, instant messages are posted immediately to the other user's screen, providing the basis for new forms of collaboration. Extended features also provide file sending and receiving feature, application sharing, audio and video.
