AOL Says Adios to Newsgroups

A brief story in The Register mentions that AOL has stopped providing access to newsgroups. AOL tells users who want to search or browse these groups to visit Google Groups.

An AOL spokesman said the service is being withdrawn because so few people use it: “Google does a very good job of hosting newsgroups and the typical AOL user probably doesn’t use newsgroups that often.”
