I recently saw this email about the end of AOL Instant Messenger, or more commonly known as AIM. Oh the memories of AIM during those nights I was supposed to be studying but chatting with friends instead. I still remember that familiar tone with messages came in.
It’s incredible to think about how much technology has changed the way we communicate with each other. Emails, text messaging, instant messaging, iChat, video conferences, Facebook, Twitter, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Instagram, Snapchat, Zoom, and more. I wonder what’s next to say goodbye as new forms of technology and platforms surface.
Thank you AIM. Thank you for all the memories and connections. You will be missed.
