MySpace finally confirmed last week the much-rumoured acquisition of leading Facebook developer iLike. Terms of
the deal are believed to be $13.5 million upfront and $6.5 million in retention payouts over time. W ith this acquisition,
th
MySpace now owns the 14 largest (according to www.appdata.com) Facebook developer – based on the number of
monthly active users. Facebook itself announced that Facebook Page owners would be able to automatically update
their Twitter status with their Facebook updates. Twitter users have long been able to update their Facebook status
with their Tweets. Clearly, the large social network players see the value in allowing their users to cross-pollinate
content across the different platforms.

A much better August than 2008: Total capital raised in August (so far) is $148.1 million on 17 transactions. The
average for August, month-to-date so far, is $8.7 million. This is well ahead of the mere $82.3 million (eight deals,
$10.3 million average) raised in August 2008. However, this is down sequentially from June and July, with one week
to go in the month. Total capital raised in July on 34 transactions was $190.2 million, averaging $5.6 million, and
June was $204.1 million (averaging $5.0 million).
