    That's not something I've ever done (), but if I did - as the N stands for "Network" - I'd probably say 'over' or 'using'. If I was forced to choose between your options, I'd say 'on' rather than 'in' (though computers connected by way of MSN are in it).

    It's not something I've ever done either, but my daughters and their friends spend a considerable part of their lives doing it, they insist that it's 'on'.
