Was once popular a few years ago among pre-teens and teens, but has since died down a lot. "Nobody uses AIM anymore" says one of my friends. Many users have not logged on for a year or so now. The alternative today is facebook chat, it is simple and convenient, and no need for screenames or buddy info - just your facebook profile is all you need. AIM was once a big hit but now is just like myspace - the empty network.
Girl B - No AIM sucks and nobody uses it anymore
Girl A - true, can we talk on fb chat?
Girl B - sure
v. - to AIM someone is to send them a message using the AIM program.
I used AIM to ask Sheila out on a date.
Sheila AIMed me back to tell me no.
Kid 2: Yea...I bet she is a fat piece of shit and lives in a trailer
Kid 1: No I saw a pic of her, in a swimsuit
Kid 2: Wow, I feel bad for you, you really need to get a life and find something else to do besides sit in chat-rooms on AIM
