Who’s Next?

With the bombshell that Facebook dropped yesterday; is Path and/or Twitter next up to be purchased by the likes of Google or Microsoft (a company that spent $1 Billion on AOL patents on the same day… ‘news’ that was completely overshadowed and almost an afterthought at best).

Unlike the classic album that’s stood the test of time; Facebook’s purchase recalls the AOL / Time-Warner merger (and the supposed new-era of the media that it ushered in). Clearly, time will tell; however, that’s a phenomenal amount of money for acquiring any given firm (especially a Start-up whose growing legions of fans have largely been turned off by the deal).
