    Oh man.. pinterest marketers get ready to have some of your accounts banned.. They were pretty lenient with the marketers, spammers and bot makers, just to have a higher valuation. Now they have got it, so should have the alternate strategy in place.

    Yeah, I think it's too much. That's not to say that we're going to have the "tech bubble burst", because honestly, things are pretty stable this time around. All the big tech companies are making cash and expanding because they're working on solid ground (yes, even Zynga since they're working on Facebook which is no doubt going to be around for quite a while).

    So I think investors are looking for online projects to invest in. Anything that's unique, or has a large real user base.
