Online Mergers and Acquisitions
After much deliberation,we, the members of Group 7, have decided to cover the topic of online mergers and acquisitions. The trend of internet-based companies had its beginnings in the DOTCOM REVOLUTION, but has more recently manifested itself in the activities of websearch giants, Yahoo! and Google. The particular aim of our investigation of this topic will be the purchase of user-generated sites, such as Facebook and MySpace. Deals like these are becoming ever more common, as these titans of cyberspace square off in a contest to draw continually larger user bases, and, of course, mega BUCK$ along the way. We look to explore the motives behind these deals, how they are reshaping the way the net works, and how they change the entities involved.
