These are the same AIM status updates you’ve always been able to post (sometimes referred to as away messages).When chatting with a friend, click the video camera icon (or click the menu icon and select “Start a Video Chat”) to start a video chat.If someone hasn’t yet updated to the new AIM, we’ll send them invitation to upgrade to the new AIM. The old AIM is like a champion race car: it’s received updates and new parts over the years. In some ways, it’s whatever you make it to be: the way you keep in touch with faraway loved ones, or the back channel to that boring meeting.Beware any emails which claim to come from [email protected]– it could be that you’re being targeted in an attack designed to steal your AOL, Gmail, Yahoo or Windows Live password.

At first glance, if you don’t look too carefully, the emails entitled “Microsoft Windows Update” may appear harmless enough.

However, they are no longer tied to your online state (“Available,” “Away,” or “Invisible”).

You can view, comment and like updates from your contacts in one stream.

You'll still need to go to to reply or send new messages. Start a group chat with two or more people by entering names of existing contacts in the “Start a chat with...” window to the right of your contact list (close your current chat if you don’t see this window).

You can also click the compose button (the one that looks like a notepad & pen) and choose people to add to the chat.

The new AIM is like a brand new supercar that has some of the old features and a whole lot more integrated into one sleek ride.
