Abstract

Instant messenger on PC and mobile is the most popular way for people's communication in real world now. Not like real time communication - Face to Face talk, or video conference, or even phone call, instant messenger may cause misunderstanding some times if there is any network issue or response time difference. Because it relies on display order for showing to the user. To eliminate this kind of misunderstanding, this disclosure introduces a way to intelligently adjust message display order in instant messenger. With this method, user will not be misunderstood by each other because of display order, even for the group chat. All messages could be delivered to others with correct meanings.
