Some blogs started spreading a rumor this week that AOL was working on its own "MySpace-killer," which honestly isn't that surprising. Given the attention that MySpace has been getting, just about every big online company seems to be working out ideas for building "their" MySpace. However, with all the buzz, AOL's own Ted Leonsis decided to head on over to his own blog to clarify. In it, he makes the big revelation that AOL has finally realized that their instant messaging platform AIM really is a social network, and rather than build a MySpace killer, they're simply looking to add social networking features to AIM. Of course, plenty of people asked why they weren't doing this two years ago, when it actually might have made a difference.
