AIM is formally lifeless | TechCrunch
Say “goodbye” (within the AOL voice, if potential) to Aol Prompt Messenger.
Again in October, Oath (the mixed entity of Yahoo and Aol) introduced that it will shutter AIM on December 15. Sure, at this time is the day.
Whereas there is no such thing as a scarcity of means to speak on-line, AIM holds a particular place in a lot of our hearts.
For a few of us, it was the primary place we talked to our crush. It was our web playground, the place we grew accustomed to on-line acronyms and first discovered concerning the very wholesome behavior of web stalking.
AIM is the primary place we ever wrote an online bio, seemingly in Comedian Sans, with outrageous textual content and background colours.
AIM by no means stood an opportunity at maintaining with the tempo of innovation on the internet, which is why its solar has set, however that doesn’t change what it meant to us.
So at this time, pour one out for teenage you typing furiously on the pc in your dad and mom’ workplace. LOL. AFK. BRB. ROFL.
Creaky door closing sound impact
