If you are usually unavailable whenever your friends want to talk to you, it is best that you use a live chat program to talk with them. With this type of program, it will allow you to see them and talk to them without any expensive fees and with the comfort of your own home. Well, some live chat services might charge you, but it is very common that many of them do not.
However, it is important that you ask your friends first about the programs they use or prefer before you start downloading, or installing a chat program. Remember that if you use a different application, you will not be able to establish a connection or a live chat session with them. So take note the chat program or service that they are using to make sure that you will be able to talk. By the way, a few of the most common and popular live chat applications or services around the Internet are Yahoo! Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Google Talk, Facebook, and Skype.
Once you determine the service that they are using, then it is time to download and install that program. It is very common that those programs can be installed or downloaded from their respective websites. And after setting up the program on your computer, the next step is to create a live chat account.
When you get your account ready, then you will need to test if your account or program is working. To do that, all you need to do is run the program and try to log in using your credentials (username and password). In case the program did not work, you might need to reinstall it, and in case that your credentials are not working, then you might need to go back to the live chat service website and see if there were any problems during your account registration.
When your account starts working and program starts running, then it is time for you to add your friends. You might want to call them or text them for you to know their usernames. On the other hand, you can just send them your username instead, and let them add you. On a different note, some instant messaging program or chat program may accept or may allow you to search your friends by using their real names. This is possible if their accounts are linked to their real names.
In case that they accepted your friend requests, then you can start chatting with them. Typically, you have the option to talk to them using instant messaging, voice calling, and video chatting. By the way, as a reminder, if you want to have a great time chatting, it is best that you make sure that your Internet connection is high-speed one.
Multiple chat agents can monitor and process live chat for your company.
