How can we improve AOL?

You are abusing your customers. We all know it. AOL content is no longer readable because of the "next page" business model and ad loading.

        too much pages for one short story just so the user can click next page button and open pages with tons of advertisements.

        Publish each story on a page l8ke everyone else
        It is an insult to the reader not to mention it doesn’t work

        Your click thru" stories suck. Just get to the point of the original story. When I see those, I just skip them. Having to click thru 20 pics to get to the point is ridiculous.

        Make sure that headlines are not as sensational as most people do not read text or make the limited text under the headline explain the truth not force you to click for more which most people do not need.

        dont dump me off aol just so you can make me look at an ad on the sign in page!!!

        So why is it that your header never matches the video that come up when you click on it? Next why is it when you find something that you would like to read you have to click page after page to complete the story why can't you just put it on one page, I am tired of next, next, next I would rather scroll one page then have to wait for pages to load all the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Insist that your content providers place their stories on no more than 2-3 pages and not 20+ pages. I am very interested in reading many of them but I refuse to waste my time clicking on 20 or more pages for 1 sentence and a meaningless picture.. It makes me happy that I don't actually pay for this forced ad garbage. If I was, believe me I wouldn't be for long.

        Put your news on 1 page - I click on it - read it entirely. Do not force me to click to another page. I will no longer do that. Too time consuming.

        You can improve it by changing the way you display articles when someone is trying to read them. It is more than a little annoying when you read part of the story and then have to go to the "next" page. Its time consuming. And as of late, when reading "all of a sudden" what ever is "trending" appears over my article! And there's nothing to be done but wait until it times itself off. It is "mind boggling" that you would interrupt a persons reading time like that! I am on the verge of uninstalling AOL! I am that upset! And I'm sure I'm not the only one.

        top stories are hard to read because when clicked on you must continue clicking sites to read

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes!! This is the most annoying thing ever, and it NEEDS TO BE FIXED! This is unacceptable, and I pay for your darn service!! Get it fixed now!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        PLEASE PLEASE FIX THE ISSUE OF WHEN YOU CLICK TO READ A STORY AND THE VIDEO IS OF SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT!! ALSO, THAT "NEXT" BUTTON REALLY NEEDS TO GO..IT TAKES FOREVER TO GET THROUGH THE ARTICLE AND IT IS UTMOST ANNOYING! COME ON AOL, YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS.. AND I PAY FOR MY SERVICE, BUT NOT MUCH LONGER IF THIS CONTINUES! SORRY...

        I just did, above, No one should have to click on 3 or 4 pages to get to the topic that you advertise.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Totally agree. Waste of time and effort. Just print the story and stop the clicking, especially when it jumps around so we click on the annoying ads.

        Bring back stories in one or two pages. Stop with this 20 page click bait ****.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        many stories that require you to hit next are clickbait.everytime you click on the next page your e address is captured for advertising purposes.A friend who is a programmer says often Aol sells lists to advertisers. Dont know if that's true, but after I try to read a story that directs you to click next, I get a ton of spam ads, mostly from sites that look babies first web site.
