EconSM Countdown: Big And Small, Social Media Investments And M&A Continue To Capture Headlines

This story was written by Elizabeth Osder.
We're just three business days away from EconSM and the program seems more and more on target each day. With the Pennsylvania primary over our opening night panel on election and politics, our panelists will share the latest on how social media is changing the political landscape. We're seeing more and more start ups grow up and buy and merge with others like in the case of AtomicOnline buying fashion community FashionSpot today. And there's certainly no shortage of headline-grabbing major acquisitions and big payoffs like AOL-Bebo and Apple's (NSDQ: AAPL) acquisition of microprocessor company PA Semi last night. So we're looking forward to having you join the conversation. Go here to register. In the meantime, continue to check out for ongoing coverage on VC and M&A.
