AOL Instant Messenger is a popular messaging tool that enables you a quick and easy way to locate and exchange text chat with friends, family or colleagues, either one-on-one or in groups.
One great thing about this particular app is that you don't need an AIM account to use the program. Simply sign in with your Facebook login details and you can chat with your Facebook friends, even if they dont use AIM themselves.
Another useful feature is Lifestream. Simply use the set-up wizard to get started and you'll be able to update your Facebook, MySpace and Twitter statuses, all from within AOL Instant Messenger.
