AOL Slashes Staff at AIM Unit

According to the New York Times, AOL has cut forty people from its AIM unit, leaving no one left but support staff.

AOL notified more than 40 employees from its West Coast offices that they would be out of jobs by the end of the month. More cuts are scheduled in the coming weeks across AOL, according to a number of executives, who spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to speak on the matter, and former executives. The layoffs are expected to include more than 100 AOL employees.
