Posted on Saturday, Nov 18 2006 @ 08:16 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Last week AOL announced an updated to AIM. The new version, AIM 6.0, focuses more on social networking and has support for RSS feeds to track your friends' online activities.
"This version (of AIM), and a lot of what we are doing in AIM Pages, is extending the user-generated communications platform on their terms with what people care about," AOL Vice President Marcien Jenckes said.

Other features of the upgrade include the ability to leave messages for friends even if they have logged off and a feature that lets users save text logs of their conversation.

AIM users can also add up to 1,000 friends on their buddy list.
