In the weeks ahead, AOL will announce a number of free new products in such areas as safety and security, storage, personalized e-mail domains, video and search, as well as an update of its AOL software.

AOL plans to increase its advertising capabilities by growing the company's large audience. According to Time Warner, the AOL Network has the second-largest US-domestic online audience and is now the third-largest online advertising network in the USA In the second quarter, AOL's advertising revenue grew 40% year over year.

AOL will continue to offer its dial-up access subscription service, but will no longer aggressively market it.
