Is it true that AOL is closing its doors?

So I've been reading stuff my Followers are writing and I am beginning to question: Is AOL going to close up shop come January? I don't know how to get validation on this information. Due to JLand closing, I can't help but wonder. Anyone have solid information on this??

Yes Karen they are closing up shop Oct.31. That is why you are seeing so many people over here talking about aol Journals. Aol will still be there but not the Journals and that is about all this old lady knows. It is so nice to see you though. I love making new friends. Lucy

I don't know about that but I have a gmail address now just in case they do. Can't hurt to be prepared:).........alice

I'm hearing all the rumor's too. I think that where there is smoke, there is fire and there has been a lot of smoke lately. Wouldn't hurt to prepare.
Hugs, Joyce

I haven't heard anything to support the rumors yet. I'd be surprised if they stop supporting email and IMs, but time will tell. I already have a gmail and Yahoo account, so I'm not worried about that.

Love the picture of Sheba! I wonder if your Sheba and our Sheeba (the cat) would get along? ;)

I'm with you--I'm not really creative enough to come up with some of the cute layouts others do! I'm just happy that it's legible. LOL

I read in the media papers that yahoo is going to take over AOL if the terms can be agreed. Is that what you have heard?

Hi. It's me writing to me to check out the email thing. Supposedly, this comment will be emailed to me...much like an alert from JLand.
