AIM Pages: Screenshot of AOL's "MySpace Killer"
Over at TechCrunch Michael Arrington has posted a nice big screenshot of AIM Pages, the much-talked-about social networking site (a.k.a. "MySpace Killer") from this blogger's employer, AOL. It's certainly prettier than MySpace, but that's not saying much, and there's no word yet on how much customization/uglification will be possible. Arrington also speaks with AOL's Kerry Parkins about AIM Pages' features, such as Flickr and AOL Music modules and its publishing tools which "make the process more simple and the results more attractive." I think that AIM Pages actually has a chance of unseating MySpace, or at least taking a reasonable chunk out of its market, solely by virtue of having an immense pre-installed userbase in the form of the millions of people who already have an AIM account. The challenge for me will be deciding which of my three screen names to use.
Update: The screenshot and interview are originally from paidContent.org, which has more info on AIM Pages.
