add me on aim, yahoo!, icq, and msn

recently, early instant messaging platforms such as aim, msn, and yahoo! have been making a comeback.

2 all those who didn't know, aim, msn, icq, and yahoo! were sum of the earlier instant messaging platforms popular during the 1990s and 2000s. they remained popular during those times, however, by the early 2010s, those platforms started 2 decline in favor of skype, imessages, snapchat, hangouts, whatsapp, and other instant messaging platforms released during the 2010s, causing the aforementioned platforms 2 shut down, with msn in 2012, aim in 2017, and yahoo! entirely in 2018. icq is still going strong, but has drastically changed over the yrs.

yahoo! messenger disabled the chatroom service in 2012, and a newer version of the platform was released in 2015, replacing the old one, before it completely shut down in 2018. yahoo! messenger briefly came back in late 2018 as yahoo! together, however, just shortly after it was released, in early 2019, that service was shut down as well.

i never grew up using any of those platforms, but now that social networking platforms popular during the 2000s r making a comeback, i have made my accounts a few months ago.

here is where u can access them: (aol instant messenger, yahoo!, and icq)Β (yahoo! and msn)

choose the version u think will work best 4 ur computer, create a completely NEW account (as u cannot use ur old emails and passwords b4 they all shut down), and ur back in the 1990s and 2000s.

it's also important 2 note that the creators of both sites r still working on getting all the versions of the platforms back, and it might take a while, so, yea, just thought u should know.

4 more information, plz watch these vids:

here r my usernames 4 each platform:
  • aim, yahoo!, icq: adriencc
  • msn:
plz keep in mind that i am using aim version 5.1, windows live messenger 2009, icq version 6.5, and yahoo! messenger 5.5.

but yea, hope 2 make new friends and continue trying out older platforms, and get a bit of nostalgia from u guys who grew up on all of this. go add me if u wanna!!

ilusm!! 😘😘

i agree. yahoo! needs a rebranding tbh. it needs 2 bring back its messenger, social networks, etc., bc every web search platform is boring.

Ya lol all the kids in my neighborhood were addicted to the computer so we had msn. It was 2010 so Myspace was over by then. Lol having msn at that age was kind of useless we just said let’s go to the park or let’s go on club penguin or let’s watch annoying orange hahaha. If I was a teenager then, I’d appreciate it more lol there was drama though, I would add my older sisters friends and they would always say like why are you on here, you’re gonna get raped. I’m like why are you on here I’m 10 but you’re 13 what’s the difference??? Lol. I guess msn was still useful then since smartphones were just starting to come out but they took over within a year-2 years. My parents barely supervised me on the computer had they not been working so much I wouldn’t be allowed to be on msn.

wow. i was so yung @ the time, so i wasn't allowed 2 create any social media accounts. my parents were only trying 2 protect me.
