Let's not forget IRC now. That is a medium that is still very much alive, especially if you're into some open-source projects and have made a home on Freenode (which splits more often than Undernet used to).

I don't and have never used AIM. I use YIM and FB Chat daily. More people need to say hello to me when I'm online. I can ramble on with the best of them.

I have my facebook and gtalk synced to AIM and it's mostly that and texting.

I think I'm like two years older than I would have to be to ever truly understand how the fuck to use text messaging. It basically wasn't a thing when I was in high school and think that will keep me forever out of the loop.
Obviously if you're around my age AIM ruled the day in the early aughties. Now my messaging seems to have Balkanized into a smattering of gchat, facebook, and, sometimes, twitter.
People who are Way Into Twitter (e.g. ME) tend to use it as a rolling, somewhat asynchronous chatroom. I wish more people would jump on that particular usage-bandwagon because twitter friggin RULES when you use it that way.

I almost always have my AIM and MSN messengers on my droid, otherwise I never sign in to them on an actual computer. Gtalk is just there if needed, again mostly through my droid and for facetime.

I use Gchat and AIM - both with the same userid I have here.
It ain't broke. why fix it?

I'm on AIM Lite all day and night acting like a celebrity thinking people will talk to me.

No one ever wants to talk to me outside of Facebook/Twitter/forums so I don't use anything ;__________;

This is a weird thread to me because I never stopped using AIM. I use Adium for gchat/AIM and talk to friends and people I work with around the clock.

So does this mean that by the time we're all stuck in Matrix Pods, you'll give up the Genesis before you give up AIM?

I have aim and gchat up every day at work. It keeps me sane to talk with people.

I just downloaded AIM for my new computer. How do you people use this thing? I haven't been on AIM in years and this is completely foreign to me. Is there like, old people AIM somewhere?

aim is kinda outdated. Many users are on gchat or fb messenger, especially since it's integrated into most smartphones from the past few years.
Actually i'm about to get rid of my aim account entirely. There are maybe 5 people I talk to on it, everyone else is on some form of google account.

I use GTalk and FB chat exclusively. If I'm home they're up in the background, even if not in active use.
