A bit of a sensationalist title, but Instant Messaging and Trashing Google exposes some very interesting numbers. I have used AIM as my IM client since it overtook ICQ in popularity. If people don't have AIM, I talk to them though email. I've tried MSN, but since my core group of people uses AIM, I have no need for it! The numbers are eye-opening, showing that MSN has the largest userbase by far, 203 million. If I had a userbase of 33 million, I'd feel pretty proud, but AIM has but 16.6% the userbase of the class leader!

Since MSN and Yahoo recently joined forces, does that mean MSN is now a 280 million user juggernaught?
