Before text messages from smartphones, before Twitter and before Facebook, there was AOL’s instant messaging service.

The once-mighty internet service provider’s AIM service, as it was known, was the way to quickly reach out to your friends in the late 1990s.

But AOL’s power has long ago faded — and now AIM is riding off into the sunset.

AOL announced Friday that AIM will become history on Dec. 15.

“All good things come to an end,” the company said. “On Dec. 15, we’ll bid farewell to AIM. Thank you to all our users!”
