Web’s New Sharing Wave the Rage Among VCs

FourSquare, Blippy, Skimble, Swipely, Dopplr and Daily Booth? How many of these new “sharing” sites and apps have you heard of…yet? Think back to 2007 and if someone asked you the same question about Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn?

Venture capitalists are betting on the new online openness those three top social networking sites have fostered to bring on the Web’s next wave — openly sharing everything from where you’re having a beer at the moment to how much you just spent on DVDs, clothes or even a nose job!

See today’s story in the New York Times, “For Web’s New Wave, Sharing Is the Point” by Brad Stone for the scoop.
