'Instant Message' allows you to speed things up and start a conversation with your top roommate prospects right away, without having to wait to be "liked" back. All messages can be viewed and continued on the "matches" page. Note that once you've started a conversation, any additional messages with the same person will not reduce your an Instant Message credits.
We only give you 5 Instant Messages to start with, so you'll have to be a little picky with how you use them. You can buy more Instant Messages or earn more by sharing your profile on social networks, inviting friends to join Diggz, or by entering a coupon code.
