In addition to Facebook Chat and ICQ, AIM users can now add Gtalk contacts to their Buddy List. In just three easy steps, you can connect Google chat and AIM in a single IM client, or add individual Gtalk friends to your contacts.

In this illustrated tutorial, I will show you how to do both.

Adding Gtalk Contacts to AIM

To begin connecting Google chat and AIM, select the "Options" menu, located on the top, right-hand corner of your AIM Buddy List. From the drop-down menu, select "Add to Buddy List," and then "Add Buddy" from the secondary menu.

Users can also press Ctrl+D on your keyboard for faster access.
