AOL Quick Buddy lets you exchange messages with a group of people, in contrast with sending Instant Messages, which enables you to communicate with only one Buddy at a time.
When you want two or more people included in your conversation to just have fun on the Internet or to discuss important projects, use the Chat feature. You can invite everyone in your own private chat rooms.
