A message to our ajc.com users

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has launched a subscriber-only premium website, MyAJC.com. It is the latest in our digital lineup of paid and free products that allow total access to our in-depth news content on computers, tablets and smartphones. Having two websites – ajc.com and MyAJC.com – enables us to serve both free and paid audiences and extend our market reach.

Each day, on ajc.com, a few dozen stories a day will be designated premium. All users can read a headline and shortened version of premium stories on ajc.com. Viewing the entire article on MyAJC.com will require a subscription to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Access to MyAJC.com is included in the AJC’s home delivery and digital subscriptions.

Will this site replace AJC.com?

No. ajc.com will remain a free site with the breaking (local and national), sports and entertainment news that our users most enjoy.

We are committed to delivering the best experience to our users, both on your desktop and mobile phones, and are already working hard to improve the ajc.com experience.  

Later this month, we are launching AJC GameTracker. It’s an interactive way to watch your favorite sport events like the Atlanta Braves. And, you may already have used one of our new tools AJC Live360 to watch and interact with fellow ajc.com users, staffers, columnists and bloggers while tapping into the social conversation.

Thank you for your commitment to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and ajc.com.

ajc.com Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is ajc.com going away since you launched the new subscriber website MyAJC.com?

A: No. Our free website, ajc.com, will continue to provide breaking news, and entertainment, videos, photo galleries, plus more social media engagement and improved site navigation.

ajc.com has a large and loyal audience. We are re-invigorating ajc.com in 2013 to expand that audience. The decision to have two news websites allows the newspaper to serve two different audiences.

Q: What are the differences between ajc.com and MyAJC.com?

A: ajc.com is designed for quick access to top headlines, news summaries and lists as well as videos, photo galleries and other features for the social media consumer. Articles marked premium – with a red “my” logo – are available in a shortened form on AJC.com. Full versions are accessible on MyAJC.com as well as through our other subscriber digital products.

MyAJC.com has a look and feel designed for readers and is exclusively for subscribers. It is organized like the printed newspaper. Subscribers get total access to in-depth local, civic and watchdog journalism. Whether you are on a computer, tablet or smartphone, the premium website adjusts automatically to your device, making it easy to read and navigate.

Each site will be updated with breaking news.

Q: Are you putting up a paywall on AJC.com?

A: No. We developed our new premium website, MyAJC.com, because subscribers told us they wanted a website that looks and feels different from ajc.com, with total access to our in-depth content. A selection of premium content stories on MyAJC.com will be available on ajc.com in shortened form. Newspapers across the country have set up paywalls on their existing websites. We are committed to having two websites: the new premium website at subscribers’ request, and ajc.com, which will remain free and will continue to provide content to that audience.

Q: Will there be changes to accessAtlanta.com too?

A: accessAtlanta.com will continue to be a free source to find entertainment across metro Atlanta. We know this site is a favorite of users who are looking for information on celebrities, events, restaurants, music, movies and more. accessAtlanta.com is also the best source for listing your events – and the destination for our annual Holiday Guide.
