A link bait if there ever was one, and a flawed one at best, but then, always fun for the rest of us: a list of 11 online companies that may be in trouble in short to medium term as the economy falls apart: the first 10 are actually decent M&A targets, and the last one, MySpace, is surely not in any imminent trouble. And with around $900 million in revenues, it is not going anywhere anytime soon. The interesting part is the first-gen companies like Skype, Ask.com and if they will make the cut in the long run…

  1. Rafat,

    1) Link bait? Really? Me?

  3. i think we may see some consolidation if companies want to survive. netvibes and pageflakes, perhaps. dailymotion should have options, especially parntering with a site that is not as strong in the european markets. and i always thought twitter would be a good acquisition for facebook, one of the few companies that could go on a smart spending spree (within reason). maybe there's a new site to create – one that allows you to place bets on the future of these companies. a virutal otb (off-track betting) for the digital age. okay, if anyone does that i want a piece of the action. . . ;-j
