Adium is a multi-protocol client like Trilian or Pidgin. I don't think it has a protocol of itself.

I use Yahoo an Facebook XMPP with the Pidgin client (i find more and more of my friends are choosing to log in with FB rather than Yahoo) and sometimes Skype when i want to talk with my family or i'm playing some multiplayer game with my friends.

I think you might want to add the iMessage (i doubt a lot of people are using it atm) protocol. Also isnt aim and icq practically the same thing. And i have a feeling, if they don't go under first, that Yahoo might move to the live protocol.

I use Facebook chat and GoogleTalk both through Empathy. I also leave Skype logged in when I'm out of the house.

Used to mostly use Windows Live Messenger, but now I've moved over more to Skype and Facebook via XMPP (So within Skype itself).

WLM, using the official client because I haven't found a suitable replacement.

Skype, or Facebook chat on my WP7 devices. I used to use WLM a lot, and I still do a bit using Trillian. (Honestly, Trillain's 7MB RAM usage and clean interface compared to WLM's 100+MB RAM and action packed interface is a breath of fresh air).

Just Facebook Chat, and only through the website. IM clients are dead IMO.

Did use XMPP on a very dodgially set-up private server but decided to play around with my own XMPP server now instead.

Also use WLM messenger 8.5, yes the 8.5 version they've disabled from connecting, rehacked so it still connects :)

Strictly Yahoo through 3rd party software.

Miranda in Windows and Pidgin in Linux.

Don't know a soul on any other protocol other than Yahoo, and nobody really uses that anymore either. In fact, don't know ANYBODY that really uses IM's anymore period.

Even though Messenger comes out on top, I wonder how many use WLM 2009 vs that abomination called WLM 2011.

Is it only me or facebook chat via WLM sucks big time. I'm having a really hard time chatting. Sometimes my friends are online and it doesn't show. Sometimes I'm right in the middle of a conversation and they disconnect (which they don't because as soon as they send me a new message, they "sign back in"). I'm kinda sick and tired of that.

Empathy worked well at the time I was using ubuntu but I got tired of that OS and moved back to windows.

I do ; WLM 2011's no-nicknames policy is ridiculous, and I don't care about social networks.

WLM through the official program (though I only have 5 people added). Occasionally Facebook and Skype as well.

I strictly use Windows Live Messenger via Adium.

Facebook Chat via the iPhone app or the Facebook website is seldom used, but it's not that great.
