MSN Messenger is scheduled to “die” on March 15th, 2013 to make room for Skype to fill the instant messaging staple’s shoes. If you’re under 30, chances are you spent a large part of your awkward tween and teen years IMing your friends on MSN Messenger. It was cooler than ICQ, had tons of awesome features like “nudge”, and it was the birthplace of many a web abbreviation. I’m pretty sure I typed my first LOL on MSN.
Those blobby, faceless little MSN men will be missed.
