Signing Off: AOL is Shutting Down Iconic 'AIM' Instant Messaging Program After 20 Years Online

It’s the end of an era.

AOL is saying goodbye to nostalgic chat program, AIM.

The last conversations will take place December 15, 2017.

An article on AOL’s website posted Friday says they’re shutting down the program because its focus is “on building the next generation of iconic brands and life-changing products.”

AOL Instant Messenger was wildly popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s and claimed more than 100 million registered users in 2001.

No one uses it now thanks to all the advancements in communication, but AIM will always hold a place in our hearts.
