Will AOL Turn Into a Relic With Verizon Deal?

As everyone pores over the details of Verizon’s blockbuster $4.4 billion acquisition of AOL, one wonders what will happen to one of the first massive internet providers. Currently, AOL is the container for a wide variety of content brands and services: from Huffington Post to MovieFone.
It’s still unclear whether Verizon spent $4.4 billion for The Huffington Post or the ad network technology in 2013.
with the announcement coming just weeks after the Comcast-Time Warner merger imploded, the timing couldn’t be better for Verizon.
Whatever Verizon’s reasons, it will welcome the AOL content family into its stable of fixed and mobile offerings, simply adding to AOL's massive brand.
