aol goes for myspace

AOL is working overtime attempting to get the MySpace audience. One of their latest efforts offers free phone numbers for AIM users. This seems like a logical goal for AOL. As Micropersuation points out, AOL already has a sales force and tight relationships with the biggest online advertisers in the world. That will bring a lot of initial money to the table.

Kids must be sick of seeing MySpace on the local news, and middle-aged business men creating profiles. If there's going to be a migration, now is the time. But is the AOL brand cool enough? Are users already too entrenched in MySpace to ever consider another service? This one will be an interesting one to watch.
