There's a difference here. In the 90's we used IRC and email.
Today people use IM applications and web forums/website IMs.
There are students which use almost no email outside of communicating
to the university, to the point where they never check their university
email. :) In fact, the students complain that they're receiving craploads
of email from the university and related groups for stuff they don't
want - a microcosm of spam on one campus. :)
