IM me now vs Online Now

Hello!

On Match - when a profile says "IM Me now", does that mean the person is actively IM'ing someone?

Then when it switches to "Online Now", does that mean they are no longer IM'ing, but are online?

I could never figure out why sometimes the profile is a black IM me, red IM me, or red Online Now. Then it will switch on the same profile from IM to Online Now. But I think this may be it. I don't have my IM activated on match. Don't want random people IM'ing me.

Thoughts?

Thanks!
