Service Cuts Make AOL Even More Useless

The newly redesigned home page is shown. In an effort to increase user loyalty and bring more visitors to, AOL is taking a step in a new direction by adding outside content.

(NEWSER) – AOL is cutting two more of its website’s offerings, a blog creator and a data hosting service, Peter Kafka notes on Silicon Alley Insider. Users of AOL Journals, which hosts blogs, will be migrated to an equivalent host. Users of AOL Hometown, which mainly store photos—and, Kafka sniffs, is “as anachronistic as a dial-up ISP”—received a stiffer message: Save it elsewhere.
