Before there was texting or DMs or Snapchat, an entire generation grew up using AOL Instant Messenger. It’s probably WHY we all took to texting so well.
Believe it or not, AOL Instant Messenger has still been around all these years . . . even though I can’t imagine anyone was still using it. And now that you found out it was still alive . . . yeah, it’s dead.
AOL just announced that they’re officially killing it off on December 15th. (Uproxx)
