Could you tell me what the letters stand for...I put in ICQ for web search, and get all kinds of non related stuff. roll

I don't know if it stands for anything as far as abbreviation per se, but it's supposed to be a play on "I seek you".

The official website is http//www.icq.com[]http//www.icq.com

It's now owned by AOL.

Don't feel bad Margot - I had no idea either. Never heard of it before seeing it here on the forums. Well, we learn something new everyday.
Hopefully someone will tell us what it actually stands for, the company name or reference.

IIRC, ICQ was/is more popular in Europe than the USA. AIM and MSN have more of a lock on IM in the USA.

Thanks, everyone.

I now understand why I've only seen it a few times...and thanks for the link!

The peices are starting to fall together. wink

Thanks again!

"ICQ" is a play on the term "I Seek You". I have been using a LOOONG time. My number is only 5 digits, starting with a 1!!
