Facebook, Groupon, Farmville, Google, Twitter, PayPal are the hot new economy. These great enterprises came from an idea and spread like wildfire. There was some venture funding, but for the most part, these internet driven ventures all grew from an entrepreneur’s dream and tapped into the 21st Century rulebook. These are all great ideas, and a lot of the growth drives from using some form of new alternative currency – Facebook credits, Groupons, game cash, AdSense, for example. This currency motivates people to enter that alternative economy and participate. The hypergrowth of these companies reflects that.
