Many Americans have memories of AOL Instant Messenger I’m sure – probably memories of talking to your crush late at night, or planning evenings out drinking with friends. Here in The Netherlands we used MSN Messenger – I have those same memories, just from a different client. AOL, ICQ and MSN have long been replaced by WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and iMessage, but I’m sure teens of today still use them for the same thing.
