This could be an interesting development to follow: AOL ones was in a certain way comparable to what Facebook is now, a company where it was hot to have an account and be active. Unfortunately they could not stay on par with the developments and their brand slowly declined over the past decade. A partnership with Facebook as suggested in the mentioned article, when it is true, might be a very effective way for AOL to find a new strategic direction for the company.
