Is AOL becoming the new Microsoft? Perhaps, as it looks as if AOL is seeking to emulate other social media platforms these days. Enter AOL’s LifeStream. This is an idea designed to be as much like Google Buzz, as legally possible.

Where AOL did things right was allowing users to aggregate other third party social networks into the mix. But this is just me. On the downside, the issue is that AOL is not offering anything real compelling for a reason to use it.

On the plus side once again, I guess there is something to the AOL option having an iPhone app, something for AIR users and so on.
