Other IM Options?: I just noticed that ICQ and AIM are the only options for instant message on our profile pages. Can that be expanded or should I just add them in the open "Blurb About You" section? The listed IM options are like having a Friendster or MySpace page ;)

Do people even use ICQ any longer? I would think google talk, facebook, twitter, would be the obvious choices.

Me too. How does MetaFilter handle it these days?

MetaFilter has nearly hundreds of options. Drop down menus full.

If it has a profile page, it's on metafilter. We can probably set our sight a little lower.

I just checked out MeFi. Matt Haughey's a damn showoff.

What services and sites do you use that you would like to include on your SportsFilter profile? For me, it's Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and Delicious.

Facebook, google plus, and twitter definitely. I think delicious is on its way to a slow death, but maybe enough people still use it to make it worthwhile.

Skype might be another to add as far as instant messaging goes, that's about all I use these days.

I think Facebook, Google+ and Twitter are a good starting point.

I use Delicious, but not socially.

I'll drink to that.

My profile. It's the one place I am unlikely to switch usernames as I don't want to lose all my records :)

This is me. In so many ways.
