So tons of KickApps-related rumors have been floating around since Kara reported last night that AOL (NYSE: TWX) is close to buying the white-label social networking service (more here and here). Turns out it is not as involved as reported: AOL has certainly expressed interest, but so have others. At this point, KickApps is not focused on doing a deal, my sources say, and it certainly hasn’t initiated a process. It is not “dating” as someone told me, but if one of them threw the right number, it would get their attention. Translation: we’ll consider everything, which really means nothing.
