People said this about Fox's myspace acquisition as well. However, by all accounts, that acquisition has already turned out incredibly profitable.

Great Post Don , you are right that a limited user base can't be monetized further beyond a certain limit and all this web2.0 companies are almost on the verge of reaching that limit

Nice post Don.

IMO, Photobucket is lucky for being acquired and 250M + 50M really is a nice deal for a site like Photobucket.

YouTube deal is completely different. Video is much more interesting and striking than pictures. Plus you can look at a picture less than 3 secs however videos are usually much more longer. It is much more convenient to add video ads to video content.
