AIM instant messenger shutting down December 15

It's the end of an era. AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is officially shutting down on December 15th, Oath announced this morning. AIM started out as the built-in chat application in America Online's desktop client, but it really took off after it was broken out as a separate application in 1997. The app, and its iconic messaging sound, were staples for anyone who spent too much time on the web in the '90s and early '00s. Really though, the writing was on the wall for AIM since AOL laid off most of the division in 2012. AIM also started cutting off third-party access earlier this year, which was a big sign the service was on its way out.

Oath -- the new Verizon company that includes AOL, Yahoo, and yes, Engadget -- isn't saying what, exactly, will be replacing AIM. For now, though, Yahoo Messenger seems like the best possibility.

"AIM tapped into new digital technologies and ignited a cultural shift, but the way in which we communicate with each other has profoundly changed," said Oath VP of communications Michael Albers. "We are more excited than ever to continue building the next generation of iconic brands and life-changing products for users around the world."

Chatrooms were wild

I remember when I was 11 at my cousins house and I was talking to one "girl" and she just seemed cool and liked beaches.

Then I talked to another "woman" and she sent me Bella interracial d!ck sucking pictures. I told her I was black and 21, the pictures were endless. She just kept saying how much she wanted my milk, my dumb a.ss looking in the kitchen
