What do Instagram, Slideshare and Meebo Have in Common?

These are the latest/pending acquisitions by social media giants Facebook, LinkedIn and the omnipresent Google. What does it all mean? Even the largest distribution channels need sticky content.

Bottomline, advertisers need eyeballs to stay with content for a long period of time so they can sell more and more. Whether you're looking at a friend's photos, a colleagues' slides or getting social ads served to you, it's the same basic principle of being exposed to a message.
