I don't like IM because I type very slowly. I just like to call people on the phone. Since I have unlimited local and national calling it doesn't cost me anything over my monthly phone bill and I get alot more out of hearing the person's voice.

I would love to have some sort of instant messaging without having to pay for it. How much is Spark Live?

When they had that instant messaging it was a lot of problems....slowed things down for a lot of us and I think must have been a tech headache too which is why it was dropped I believe. As it was mentioned, the message boards do help to make connections and being as active on teams as you can really strengthens the connections. If you can't afford the time to be active in many teams find at least one that you feel comfortable with and work it...our sparkfriends are our strength!

I always wondered why SP never had instant messager feature. That's why I love SP LIVE. I get to interact with people, face to face or have realtime conversations with people who are going through what I'm going through and it's awonderful feeling. I don't think we should have to pay extra for it though. It should be easier than that to get connected to people.

yes, it always seems to be a benefit to have direct contact

Well there is the next project for the SparkPeople tech department. A messaging system within or even in addition to (maybe a cohort with Yahoo or Google) for Spark members, even if they included it in the Coach or meeting parts. Great Idea!!!

Have a little faith, take a single step and DREAM even if it breaks your heart!

GEt involved on the message boards! I've made lots of friends through teams and message boards. We often chat back and forth via our Sparkpages. It's a little clunky though; there is a private message system, though!
