One of AOL AIM's new features is Screen Name Linking. This feature lets you IM under multiple identities, say, your business screen name versus your "after hours" persona, even at the same time -- and no one will know your secret. America Online Instant Messenger Screen Name linking allows you to be logged on with all your AIM identities at the same time, send and receive IM's and toggle between your Buddy Lists all from one window. This feature is only available in AIM versions 5.5 or later.
