It's a method of instant communication with other people that use the 
program. Once you get it set up, you can see who else among your list of 
friends is on line and you can send messages. There is also a chat 
function. You can also send files, URLS, etc. Pretty neat. You can even 
send messages to people that are not on-line and they will get the message 
as soon as they log in with ICQ.

There is another program that many AOL members use called AIM (AOL Instant 
Messenger) which does similar things... but unfortunately these programs do 
not communicate with each other.
