Today we say goodbye to AIM, that bastion of creativity, connectivity, and adolescent tomfoolery that helped bring so many of us into the digital age in a meaningful way. Whether you were a tech-savvy early adopter or a curious, socially awkward kid, when AOL Instant Messenger launched in 1997, there was a place for you (and your terrible screen name).
For the first time ever, we're giving away a one year HOLIDAY RED NICKNAME to our Most Valuable Member in December!
Earn Crown Points to climb the ranks of the global Most Valuable Leaderboard. That's right, everyone can participate — but you'd better start gifting now!
Special Hint: Sundays in December, select Virtual Gifts are worth double points for Santa Sundays. Send and receive gifts on Sundays to give yourself an extra boost in the rankings.
Celebrate the end of 2017 and the promise of 2018 with this unique prize.
