AOL is an online media company owned by Verizon Communications.
The New York-based media corporation operates websites such as The Huffington Post, Engadget and TechCrunch.
AOL was one of the early pioneers of the Internet in the 1990s, becoming one of the most recognised brands in the world. Originally, the company offered dial-up internet services to users in the US, providing email, instant messaging and a web portal.
After its well-publicized acquisition of Time Warner in 2001, which at the time was the largest merger in US history, AOL saw a rapid decline. This was partially blamed on the shift to broadband. AOL was eventually spun off from Time Warner in 2009.
In 2015, AOL was bought by Verizon Communications fro $4.4 billion.
