  • AIM version 6.1 (or america online instant messenger) is one of the best instant messengers around, if you ask me
  • AIM has more users than any other instant messenger available today, and the majority of the people I talk to use this very convenient instant messenger, which is very full of features
  • I would recommend meeting people somwhere else, like on a social networking site such as myspace, facebook, netlog, etc. then getting their AIM screename and continuing the chat in a fast-paced, private manner
  • This is amazing, because you'll see when people are typing, when people are away, when people have sent messages, when people have become idle, and when people have signed off, all on each tab in very easy-to-read and understand, icons

      AIM version 6.1 (or america online instant messenger) is one of the best instant messengers around, if you ask me.

      PEOPLE

      Tons of people use it, like I said before. There is the option of chatting, however robots (automatic chatters) pretty much rule the chat rooms, so that’s pretty much obsolete now. I would recommend meeting people somwhere else, like on a social networking site such as myspace, facebook, netlog, etc. then getting their AIM screename and continuing the chat in a fast-paced, private manner.

      TABBED CHAT

      Ahh, the most awesome tab feature. Every buddy you’re talking to at once all fits into one window on your task bar. This is one of the best features ever! Within that one window, you can talk to as many people as you want, and all of the tabs just appear on that one window for each person you’re talking


      to. This is amazing, because you’ll see when people are typing, when people are away, when people have sent messages, when people have become idle, and when people have signed off, all on each tab in very easy-to-read and understand, icons! Most people don’t understand the importance of the presence of this feature until they switch to another instant messenger which is lacking this feature. I would highly recommend using aim just for the ultimate convenience of the tab feature. Windows Messenger, yahoo messenger, and several other popular instant messengers do not yet offer this feature, however they may release it soon, of course, because a growing number of people highly enjoy the presence of this feature and the other instant messengers are going to have to expand to meet people’s needs, and add this feature.

      COLORS

      The newest addition to aim! The ability to change the colors of buttons and the background color of windows! This adds a lot of people to the aim service as well, because these small details like the ability to change the ...


      • color of the buttons in the Instant Messenger window can really make people stand in awe at the convenience of making their window look the way they want at any given moment. It’s as easy as the click of a color on a color pallette. I would recommend having aim to anyone who is interested in changing the color to their current mood, or just because they like seeing or trying out new things, on a daily or more frequent basis. There are also themes as well now, you can apply one theme to every instant message and buddy list window. This feature even adds more attention to the newest version of aol instant messenger.

        STATUS MESSAGES

        This is also an uprising feature in today’s instant messaging world. aim has already added this feature, because some people are interested in setting a display message, but don’t want to have their status sent to away. This means that I could set my status to “bored” without actually leaving the away message up, people could see it, but still

        talk to me without having the annoying away message come up every time I get a new instant message. This feature is cool because it can easily allow you to tell what all of your friends are doing at any given time, without them having to actually be away from the computer, or be pretending as if they are. Many people prefer to keep their private life private, and decide not to use this feature. This is perfectly acceptable as well, it just doesn’t display any message at all, although some people may be curious as to why you don’t use it, or may just assume that you don’t know how, or that you have an older version of aol instant messenger. I would recommend just taking advantage of every feature of the instant messager that you feel comfortable with, never do something that you’re not comfortable with.

        OVERALL SATISFACTION

        Overall, I’m very satisfied with this instant messenger. I would recommend using it to anyone interested in very fast paced conversation with tons of features and preferences available.
