AOL consumers were shopping, chatting, getting news and information and playing multi-user games online at the dawn of the internet. We were the cornerstone of social media long before anyone knew what a social network was – or could be. We were a small but passionate group of employees with a vision for the future – a start-up before “start-up” became part of the daily vernacular.

Today our numbers have grown, but our vision remains the same – provide the news, information and services that enhance and connect peoples’ lives.
At AOL we’re focused on radically redefining the world of online communications. We are transforming how people around the globe connect with information, entertainment and one another by bringing together award winning journalists and innovative technologies to create rich and engaging consumer experiences.
