Why and how does AOL still exist...and earn money!?
becker 1 year ago
I saw the financial results for AOL in the business section today, and the first thing that came to mind was, AOL?!? Who the heck is using AOL? I asked around the office and almost everyone had a similar action. One "rebel" admitted that he still had an aol email, but this is a guy didn't have a cell phone until last month...a cell phone, not a smart phone. And yet AOL just posted $577 million in revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011. Honestly, I though this company was put-a-fork-in-it dead and done. How are they still around and who is still using AOL?
