      LOL!!

      Seriously, though, this recent spate of social media-related IPO's reminds me somewhat of every other bubble we've had over the last couple decades. I question if many of these will have the lasting quality that will make them a good investment over the long term. Will people still have interest in Groupon and LinkedIn ten years from now? Take a look at MySpace......

          Myspace shot themselves in the foot by not protecting the privacy of their members. FB has the potential to go that way as well but for now advertising space is in high demand.

            Hey how do regular Joe's like me get in on IPOs? I mean, when Linked In was first on the market, I couldn't find the ticker symbol on my Scottrade account. I believe it will be the same for Groupon. Am I missing something? I'm new to IPOs.

              Very good question and I was just looking into that actually with LinkedIn. From what I found out only certian investors are aloud to buy into IPOs I guess. I guess the company your using to buy stocks they have to allow you to. So im guessing its for big money investors.

                So were you able to get in on LinkedIn? When it first came out?

                  Scottrade had LNKD on it's first day. You just had to type in the exact ticker symbol; it didn't come up as possible results when you first started typing L-N-K-D because the name was not in the search system I guess.
