There have been quite a few valuations of rather large tech companies lately. With LinkedIn’s recent IPO and Microsoft’s acquisition of Skype, just to name a few.

From the very first email all the way to current day, it’s interesting to see the evolution of social networks and their importance in our lives. Now more than ever the use of the internet affects how we go about our day. Is there ever a single day when you don’t use some form of...
