Facebook could have something like AIM with IM boxes down up from the bottom or just anywhere in the desktop like how AIM had. Facebook would just become a better tool than it already is for searching. With a "facebook" friends/buddy list on the side of your desktop, you would still be engaged with facebook but wouldnt have to deal with posts coming in and advertising.

No bullsh*t, AOL/AIM as a teenager let me type what I was thinkin, go back and delete and get that sh*t right before hitting send lol. Over time the pimpin was perfected, especially if you tellin the hos what they wanna hear and got them laughin through a computer screen.

I believe Time Warner dropped the ball on AOL.
For example Time Warner Cable Launched Road Runner, their first high speed internet service. They could of incorporated AOL with that but didn't.
Time Warner did little to nothing help AOL innovate.

AOL was run by imbecils. If you look at this case study in depth, it was one of the worst f*ckups of all time. This is one of the most famous business case studies to examine.

AOL had the jump on everything. It had a lock on digital music; ISP; social media. It could have been Facebook, Twitter, Comcast, Instagram, Tidal, rolled up into different divisions under one parent company and they f*cked it up by hustling backwards buying a magazine company.

It would be like if Apple spent half they stack buying up bookstores and DVD Manufacturers.

If Facebook would adopt a similar chat room feature, it would be enormous.
