Advantages: good way of communication with family and friends
I used to use this site for chatting to my family who do not live near me, I found it at the time very useful and that was about 5 years ago, and I could speak over the voice facility and hear my family and use a webcam to see them at the same time, so found it enjoyable to see them moving around etc.
I found it to be not so reliable at times though and found myself being cut off midway through a conversation and found it very annoying because I had to re login everytime, and sometimes it used to freeze and hold and by the time I eventually got back to my family they had waited to long and so left to do other things, which is understandable. They found the same thing happening to them and sometimes it was at the same time as my disconnection.
This service has to be downloaded onto your PC and it just takes about 5 minutes and you then have to get an ID and password and then you just login and put these details into the box and click login and then you are into the messenger.
There are different places you can visit from your messenger, such as email, which is a Yahoo email and games and even chat rooms which have different areas to visit, such as countries and areas within a country.
I have been into some of the chatrooms but found them to be not so welcoming as some people would tend to boot a new person from a room, which I found annoying so I did not go into them very often, they do lots of games rooms too, which I found much better and found the games entertaining and fun.
It is a free service and quite good if you have family away from home and want to catch up with them but I have since found a different way of communicating with my family which is a little bit better.
I did not find it a good service for my liking.
Summary: not good for my liking
