AOL BlueString service

AOL has launched a new website called BlueString, its attempt at a file-sharing service similiar to the likes of Flickr. BlueString goes considerably farther however, allowing people to upload music and videos as well as photos, which can fill up to 5GB of free storage. 50GB is $99 per year. The site's namesake feature meanwhile is called "String It," and allows users to link and combine media in presentations that can be shared with others. This includes being able to embed media on other websites.

Should users want to take the opposite tack though, they can also restrict media access to friends and/or family. BlueString is currently in beta; a planned addition for the fall is the ability to link photos and videos from third-party sites, without having to waste space in a BlueString account.
