id say "use the system that best fits the job".
for a myspace like site, async communications works. if people know each other offline they can often agree to call each other without having to go via myspace to do so.
same with email and im. if its time critical to get a response, call their mobile phone. then its im and email when sorted by how important it is to get a reply NOW...
why this sort? because with a phone you get a instant feedback if the person is available.
the im systems supposedly have a similar feature, but more often then not people are present when set as away or not present while set as present...
email have no indication what so ever on the persons status, therefor its the worst for trying to get a quick response.
