Bug Description

Instant messaging options seem to be out of date. For instance, Google Talk has been discontinued since February 2015, AIM was discontinued in December of 2017, and Windows Live (Messenger) merged into Skype. I would recommend replacing this page with a few helpful links to services like Discord, Whatsapp, Telegram, and Slack.

It seems better is to recommend free/open source communications services, like Jitsi https://meet.jit.si or Jami (GNU Ring)

The intention seems to me to be to mention a few services with many users irrespective of the conditions for using those services and/or copyright for the software involved. We don't recommend the services, but rather inform of a way to interact with those users who do use them.

@Mantas: Do you possibly want to make a merge proposal with the changes to the page you would like to see?
