AIM IS DEAD!
LONG LIVE AIM!
AOL Instant Messenger died a silent death today. It was announced many months ago that the messaging service would cease to exist in December.
And today? It was over.
We know there are so many loyal fans who have used AIM for decades; and we loved working and building the first chat app of its kind since 1997. Our focus will always be on providing the kind of innovative experiences consumers want. We’re more excited than ever to focus on building the next generation of iconic brands and life-changing products.
I, like YOU, spent countless nights in the late 90s and early 2000s getting to the know the Internet while spending time in AIM. My name was Loomicide. And now… It’s AIMicicde. Gone.
And the saddest of all? YOUR BUDDY LIST IS GONE.
Can I save my Buddy List?
Unfortunately you are not able to save or export your Buddy List.
The net is reborn every hour.
But those old days of the wild NET west?…..they are the the days that will never come back again.
