hats you Looks like this year is the end of many eras, we first bid goodbye to Ms. Paint, then came news that Google is bidding farewell to the famous saving mechanism that we were all oh-so-familiar with, the Google Drive.
It is now time to say goodbye to one more instant messenger service that helped thousands make friends online without making it creepy! AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) has announced their farewell from the world wide web on the 15th of December 2017.
AIM had a great run for two decades and was highly popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

All those times of waiting for the internet to load so you could check out an online friends picture will now be part of your sweet childhood memories!
For those wondering what will happen to all those awkward chats you had during your teenage years, AIM has mentioned that people could save the chats they have got saved on their application before the 15th of December this year.
“You can use AIM and save your chats. After 12/15/17, you will no longer have access to AIM”
The Instant Messenger service has further mentioned,
“USER data associated with AIM will be deleted after December 15, 2017.”
AIM’s decision to say goodbye has certainly broken some hearts. People took to Twitter to express their feelings!
