AOL Instant Messenger Will Soon Chat Its Last

AOL Instant Messenger will go to the great chat room in the sky on December 15, 2017.

The seminal social media app brought messaging to the masses with its group chats and Buddy Lists, and paved the way for Facebook, Snapchat, and all the rest. AIM introduced custom icons and voice chat, file sharing and chatbots. It also gave its users real tools to defend themselves against trolls, with a warning button that slowed down the troll’s internet connection before cutting it.

But for all the innovation it brought, AIM’s time is over, now. We will not see its like again.
