    There are so many forms of communication available, BBM was pretty cool when everyone was sporting Berry's but not so much now

    I use Kik for some if my friends from an app board that I post on and I really like it. Bbm was cool the little I used it. I think kik and the other messenger apps are great for security reasons because you don't have to give out your number.

    I think for teens its even better for that reason. Especially with all the creepy people out there who if given a cell number may try to stalk etc.

    All I gotta say is ..."WHY"?

    Do we need another means of communicating? I wonder if we can send files such as mp3's and such as we used to when using our dinosaur blackberry devices?

    BBM cross platform isn't out yet, so how can it rank? It has only been available on the phone that is 3% of sales, so I don't really think you can compare it realistically to an app that is on most of the major phones. Give it 6 months after it is on Android and Iphone and then we should see how it will position itself. This is like going to a funeral for Joe, and as your standing around the casket you realize Joe is standing next to you!

    Everyone's so worried about the NSA but are more than willing to hand over all privacy to third party companies. LMAO.

    I'm much more worried about 3rd party companies persecuting me than the NSA. Third party companies would pay good money for my contact list and what my interests are so they can bombard me and my contacts with spam. Have you ever been force fed spam? Waterboarding would seem like a vacation. On the other hand the NSA could give a $#!t about my info.

    Can black those permissions that allow access to contacts. Not that difficult.

    Then again I have little use for any of these.

    Glad you enjoy mocking those that believe differently than you.
