Hey yeah it’s me all right

RIP AIM, truly the end of an era. I feel bad that I didn’t log on one last time before it went away

There will never be another experience like AIM. The golden age of desktop computers.

there's an AIM clone called AIM phoenix you can use that has its own server but hardly anyone uses it, you can't recreate the magic

Nobody really used the official one so that's unsurprising, but still sad. Only a single person out of the dozens on my list was even active on the last day when I checked in, Wyborn. Would've been neat to see the whole list light up again like the old days, but I guess it's just the end of an era.

AIM effectively died around 2007-2008, it just wound down to a couple of active users by the end of its service in december 2017

i'd say text messaging and the shift to mobile internet killed it with social media chat apps like fb messenger delivering it the final blow

yeah, once text chat became something other than a niche form of communication, there was really no place for AIM anymore
