How much data does IM use?

How much data would, say, one hour of instant messaging use up? Just want to make sure I don’t go over my data allowance.

common misconception, data is measured in up/down transfer not time spent on-line.

as for instant messaging it uses virtually nothing, if you are only using IM you will not go over your limit

Yeah, you can IM forever and not get over any limit.

Does IM even count as data? I'm not certain.
