AOL presents their new site Owl as “a living, breathing library where useful knowledge, opinions and images are posted from experts from all over the world”.
However Owl seems more of a testbed for SEED than anything else.
If you’re not familiar with it, SEED is AOL’s open content submission platform where content creators with expertise and knowledge to share can submit content, get published on AOL’s network of websites, and get paid for contributions.
Owl is a place for expertise to live too. Whether you’re a professional or just looking to share what you know with others, your passions now have a place to be published and accessed by everyone. Simply submit your content and your knowledge will be shared with the world. And if your article gets approved, you’ll be paid for your contribution too.
The aim of these new sites is for AOL to create as much content as possible on current topics through their huge network and beat similar sites such as “Helium” or “About.com”… So if you fancy yourself as the teacher type or just want to share your passion, head over to OWL.com .
