The Wall Street Journal Online, published by Dow Jones & Company, has announced that it will make news summaries and stock quotes available to users of America Online's Instant Messenger services, including members of AOL, AOL Instant Messenger service, and Enterprise AIM services. By sending an instant message to screen name "WSJOnline," those using the AOL and AIM services will have access to continually updated summaries of business and technology news, as well as company headlines and stock quotes. AOL members and AIM service users who are subscribers to the Online Journal will be able to link from the news summaries to full stories on the Web site, as well as drill down to access the Online Journal's detailed company financial information. America Online instant messaging users can add the "WSJOnline" screen name to their AOL Buddy List. Businesses using America Online's Enterprise AIM Services will have access to the feature as well. Ailiant LLC's InfiniteAgent software will enable the system.
