Noticed that we've got a few tags related to SMS that ought to be merged (I think under SMS because that's the most precise term)

  • Related note: I think instant-message should be renamed to instant-messaging. – Matthew Read Apr 4 '11 at 13:36
  • Done. There were just two. – Amanda Apr 4 '11 at 17:47
  • you can use tag syntax in situations like this: [tag:sms] [tag:messaging] etc – Jeff Atwood Apr 5 '11 at 1:43

Sounds good to me, especially since it appears users aren't using to refer to email or anything else but SMS.

I have proposed the other two as synonyms for (link).

On the other hand, is proposed as a synonym for , which I disagree with since again, users have only used for SMS.

  • Instant message more accurately refers to IM clients, like AIM and Google Talk. "Messaging" could refer to IM and/or SMS. – ale Apr 4 '11 at 15:33

    Agreed. It looked like all the "messaging" questions were SMS related. The two instant-messaging questions are about AIM/Jabber clients. – Amanda Apr 4 '11 at 17:49
  • Since "messaging" could count for either or both, it probably should go away. Trouble is people will probably still use it, so it needs to be a synonym or have a rock-solid definition. – ale Apr 5 '11 at 12:44
