#ai generated TL;DR

Instant messaging services like #ICQ and #AOL were popular in the late 1990s. Jabber, an open protocol for #federated chat, emerged but failed to gain mainstream adoption. Though #GoogleTalk and #FacebookChat later supported #Jabber, they eventually removed support. Jabber failed because most users were unaware of its existence and how it differed from proprietary chat apps. Users need to understand the concepts and principles behind decentralized networks for them to succeed, otherwise network providers can change or destroy them without users realizing. #Email succeeded where #Jabber failed because users understood email as an abstract concept beyond specific providers.
