In 1996 ICQ, one of the well-known instant Messaging (IM) applications was introduced to the desktop environment . Other instant messaging applications surfaced as well such as AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), Skype, MSN Messenger, Google Talk, and Yahoo! Messenger . These applications gained popularity as a result of features such as the synchronous nature of communication, awareness of the presence of the person with whom the user wants to correspond, and the user's ability to select the contacts to add to their own contact list . With the increased popularity of IM applications in personal and professional usage, it was just a matter of time until they were utilized to perform cyber crimes such as phishing, social engineering, threatening, cyber bullying, hate speech and crimes, child exploitation, sexual harassment, and illegal sales and distribution of software .
