The first instant messengers appeared with the opening of the first Internet postal services. Today, like 20 years ago, they are used for instant messaging in print, sound, in addition to this, some of them have functions for sending files of various formats.

Help for those who have not found yet how to get the installation file

Today, there is no need to study the exact sciences in depth to understand what the icons in the messenger mean. Typically, this is a set of special characters that remain active when special conditions are created. Usually their meanings are intuitive:

Working changes of such software often cause a wave of user discussions. For example, many people don't like the latest Skype update, that often freezes, which did not happen with earlier versions.

Our site has collected portals that contain the current versions for installing the messenger, updating it, as well as addresses and links in case of service issues.

The functionality of almost every messenger requires access to the user's contacts. Many users agree with this, which subsequently allows them to find people through search services, even those who are not registered with a particular service. Every fact from our life: mom's maiden name, animal name, favorite dish - these are drops in the piggy bank of open sources of information that often use bots.

Foreign resources

If we talk about finding people from a foreign audience, where there are also a lot of their own messengers, the YikMap project (YakMap transcription), in the common parlance Yaki, seems especially interesting. He gathered young people after 18 and somewhere under 25, although there is no age limit.

This application is similar to the elements of children's fun "Zarnitsa", only using a completely modern smartphone. The process of communication is accompanied by fixing the coordinates of people taking part in active correspondence by sending "Yak". Other users can reply to such a message, “like” it or vice versa. This project allows you to find people who are nearby at the moment. Archives make it possible to calculate objects that were nearby some time ago. In some cases, it is possible to determine the IP, and many users already know what does it threaten.

Also here you will find links to the official pages of WhatsApp, Snapchat. Installing instant messengers does not take a lot of time, and using them with an eye on security options will bring a lot of pleasant impressions. Again, any data left by the user makes it possible to find it many times faster.

Although such applications allow you to organize group chats, sometimes more complete information about the subject of discussion is required. Use "Forums" section to get an idea of the most popular Internet portals and how they can be used.
