The employees were based mostly at AOL's Dulles, Va., headquarters, plus in Mountain View, Calif., and a handful of other facilities around the country.
The layoffs account for approximately 1.5% of AOL's 18,000 employees. Earlier this month, AOL's Interactive Marketing unit laid off 90 employees.
More cuts are expected as AOL attempts to contain costs and reorganize its business. AOL Chairman-CEO Jonathan Miller pledged to cut $100 million in costs at the division in a presentation to analysts last week.
