ICQ is an instant messaging program which existed long before any of the most popular and well-known programs we are familiar with today. Surprisingly, it still has a small following.

ICQ still works as it did in the past, but AOL has made some not-so-popular changes to the system such as adding ads and other rubbish to its interface and its installer, depending on which country you're located it. AOL sold the program to Mail.ru several years ago.

Unlike Facebook, Windows Live Messenger, Skype and AIM, ICQ users are supposed to identify themselves with an "ICQ Number". This is the primary way of finding and adding friends, but unlike years past, is not the only way of locating somebody.

The current iteration of ICQ supports custom statuses, feeds from friends and integration with competing social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Unfortunately, ICQ is not very good at importing friends from other social networks.

Some of the good things about ICQ is its ability to send files, its gaming service and the possibility to log in to the network with its web messenger. It is also able to send offline messages and provides other various features. Unfortunately, the the ICQ service is also prone to downtime like it was in the 90s.

It really is a blast from the past, but ICQ has essentially been beaten to death by AOL and unsuccessfully revived by a Russian company.
