The Rise And Fall Of AOL
 

 

CNBC
Published on Aug 15, 2019

At its peak in December 1999, AOL had a market capitalization of $222 billion dollars. Since then, the influx of broadband internet and the burst of the dot-com bubble reduced the one- time internet behemoth to a shadow of its former self.

AOL once dominated email, internet connectivity, online news, and chat. AOL couldn't maintain its superior position as subscription and advertising revenue dried up with the shift from dial-up modems to cable broadband. A disastrous merger with Time Warner in 2000 was unwound in 2009. Along the way, AOL tried but failed to buy Facebook, YouTube and a minority stake in Chinese Internet company Tencent, Eventually, AOL to sold to Verizon in 2015 for just $4.4 billion.

Before DMs, it was chatrooms and instant messenger. I used to be pissed when I hit up a shorty and her away message popped up after I saw she was just active LOL.

Was a different day and age. I never posted pics on my profile not cuz i m embarrassed or anything, just didnt wanting every girl on there knowing who I was. Was an easy way to get caught up especially if you dealing with a bunch of joints in the same area. Thats when you knew if you had real game or not though, go at the baddest joints on there with no picture, k*ll them off the message game/ phone game. Then get em to come through and smash, I had some really good ones and lifetime favorites off that era.
