News aggregation and online reference sources, examples of which are Digg and Wikipedia, are also counted in the social media bucket. Micro-blogging sites such as twitter can also be included as social media.

  • News Corporation (NWS) owns Myspace, the most-viewed website in the world. It also purchased Photobucket, a photo-sharing website.
  • Yahoo! (YHOO) has been making moves to enter the social media segment. Its Flickr photo-sharing website and 360 social networking site are examples of this.
  • Google (GOOG) purchased YouTube, a leading online video sharing website.
  • Microsoft (MSFT) announced a minority $240 million investment in Facebook in late October, valuing the company at an estimated $5 to $15 billion overall.
