As a part of today’s layoffs and the integrations with the Huffington Post, AOL is going to shut down many more of its media brands than previously expected.

A source close to company tells us the decisions on which sites will be trimmed hasn’t been made yet, but that many brands could get combined, and that many destination site URLs will soon cease to exist.
