The only reason why instant messaging was thrown to the back as a tool for social media connection was the introduction of Web 2.0 which allowed for more flexibility in communication. Adium is an instant messaging app with some of the components of Web 2.0 services, making it one of the best instant messaging apps on the market.

Adium has a very easy installation process, although the 20.8MB file may take longer than expected to download with a slow Wi-Fi connection. After installation, the app prompts you to key in a username and password, after which you can log in to the services that are offered.

Adium supports an assortment of messenger services including Yahoo, MySpace IM, MSN Messenger, Apple Bonjour and Google Talk among others. The application will merge the IM accounts for your contacts that have more than one account. When you mouse over a contact, a pop-up window will show up with an enlarged buddy icon and all the IM clients that your contacts have signed into.

Adium IM application is easy to use. The user interface is simple, with contacts featured in a single, well-customized buddy list. You can customize the layout by choosing from different skin options, menu bar icons, window layout, opacity level, emoticons, service icons and status icons.

The notification icon for a new IM is a cute Adium duck icon that flaps its wings to grab your attention for the new message. This animation can be turned on or off, but as long as it’s on it will notify you of any unread messages. All the conversations are featured in a tabled window. To toggle the window, simply press on the Apple key and then press the right and left arrow keys.

This messenger app is able to send links and files to contacts. Moreover, you can check your Facebook pages directly from the Chat client and you can also send e-mails from this platform. Adium offers Off-the-record Messaging, which is very secure as the messages are encrypted with a password.

Extra functionality in Adium is provided by the apps multiple plug-ins like Skype (allows you to chat using VoIP) and Adium Time Zone among others.
