Will there be an IPO ripple effect in Web 2.0/Social?

Predictions:

  • Facebook will IPO during 2011, partly as a consequence of the (so far) successful LinkedIn IPO. They will do so pushed by investors and founders alike. (very likely)
  • So will Groupon and Zynga. (very likely)
  • Foursquare and Twitter will too, but they don’t have revenue to motivate a high valuation, so the stock could collapse. (likely)
