Aol News is looking to enforce the concept that news is real-time with its launch of Aol News Real-Time, which adds real-time badges to its 100 most active articles, as well as highlighting the top six stories being read at that moment, complete with reading counts.

The goal, according to Aol News, is to bring the news to life and give users information on how many people are reading stories at the same time, as well as where other users are going in real-time.
