The AIM application has evolved over the years to become a comprehensive communication software that works with multiple platforms such as Facebook to chat on text, voice, and video.

From a single post, the user can update multiple platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. The user can hide the lifestream and focus on the AOL chat window.
