We asked you to weigh in on Connie Loizos’s post about Mark Cuban’s take on the mania over certain Internet companies, such as Facebook, Twitter and Zynga. Cuban says we’re really not in a new Internet bubble. Instead, we’re seeing “the 2011 version of a private equity chain letter.” The early investors in these companies will do just fine, but the last VC who comes in at an insane valuation is going to be left holding the bag, Cuban says.
So far, more than 1,200 of you have taken our survey. (It’s still open. If you want to get in on the action, scroll down to the bottom of this post.)
You overwhelmingly answered yes to Question 1: “Mark Cuban says the current mania over certain Internet companies (such as Twitter and Facebook) isn’t a bubble, but more like “a private equity chain letter.” And some sad sack is going to end up holding the bag. Is he spot on or off the mark?” At last count, 1,175 of you (or 94.2%) said Cuban was spot on. Just 73 (or less than 6%) said he was off base.
