For example in Ireland, Paddy Power – a platform for making bets, is ready to participate in betting about future inputs by Facebook. Review these start-up companies below.
There are many debates about being Foursquare in this list. Some think that Foursquare has high chances to be purchased by Zuckerberg, while others do not support such point of view.

Today’s blog is the most important information stream online for thousands of people, so it is very Likely that Zuckerberg has certain plans for blogs.
Talks about necessity to purchase special social media platforms, that will be targeted on music, video and software, do not stop. Consequently, Evernote is the most convenient recourse for Mark Zuckerberg to achieve such aims.
Dropbox is a cloud data storage center, where users can save various applications and personal files. Paddy Power announces such chances for Dropbox to be purchased by Facebook: 5 to 1.
