10 years of YMessenger and friends
Posted on June 21, 2008
As time went by, I became more and more flooded with people in my messenger list… people who I did not know how to classify anymore… Business, friends, different work places, university … sometimes I have personal friends that I do business with and have done university with … that is a challenge.
I know some people have the guts to just delete from their list anyone they have not spoken with in 3 months … I could not do that … so right now I have in my Ymess list 329 ids, categorized into 12 groups. The most relevant groups are only 4, with a total of 56 people…
Hey, Yahoo messenger Project Manager guy … if you are interested in what the consumer would need, please take into considerations these things:
- first, groups should have the possibility to include other groups as well
- secondly, any contact should have something like tags associated. So when I want to see all business partners, I could see them no matter of what group I’ve listed them in (that would happen, of course, if I correctly and completely tagged my contacts in the Yahoo Messenger list)
Anyway, I do not know how things were possible before, when there was no IMessagging … my entire professional life was accompanied by YM … so I still remember how I was 1 meter away from my colleague, yet, instead of turning to him to tell him something, I would just write on messenger … life is beautiful!
