Los Angeles-based ShopIt, which develops software which allows users to create storefronts for their social networking profiles, said today that it has released a new application focused on AOL's instant messenger service, AIM. According to ShopIt, its new application allows users to buy and sell goods from the AIM Buddy List; users can select items they'd like to sell and post them to their store for purchase.
