highlighting Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Yahoo! Inc.
(NASDAQ:YHOO), AOL, Inc. (NYSE:AOL) and Linkedin Corporation (NYSE:LNKD).

Google Inc. Research Report

Google's share price is currently in its record-high territory hovering just
below the $800 mark, continuing to rally after releasing solid financial
numbers earlier this year. Its core search business had undergone changes in
its search campaigns, placing larger emphasis on smartphone and tablet
segments. The move addresses Google's declining cost-per-click statistics and
the need to monetize the so-called "mobile gap." In addition, there are rumors
of Google retail stores coming up in an attempt to follow Apple's example in
building a consumer-electronics brand. The stores are seen to be selling
Google-branded hardware like its Nexus tablets and smartphones and
Chromebooks, though the plan may not push through this year. The Full Research
Report on Google Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and

Facebook Inc. Research Report

Facebook is still the number one web destination with a 10.8 percent share of
total time spent online in December 2012, according to data gathered by
analytics firm ComScore. The site demands the most attention compared to its
closest competitors, even though Google sites commanded a larger audience with
191.4 million people in the US. Google came in second place in terms of share
of time spent online at 10 percent, while Tumblr.com is second among social
media sites. Specifically, Facebook also accounted for 5 out of every 6
minutes spent on social sites, or about 83 percent of time spent online.
Tumblr meanwhile accounts for 5.7 percent of time spent online on social
sites, followed by Pinterest and Twitter at 1.9 and 1.7 percent, respectively.
In other news, Facebook looks to be one of the forerunners in a potential
buyout of microblogging social site Twitter. The Full Research Report on
Facebook Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price

Yahoo! Inc. Research Report

Yahoo is experiencing a sort of renaissance since hiring former Google
executive Marissa Mayer as its chief executive six months ago, resulting into
both investor and analyst confidence in the stock and company itself. Mayer
introduced several changes after assuming the post, including increased
employee perks, improvements in Yahoo Mail and Flickr, and "acqui-hires," or
the purchase of smaller companies for developer talent and products. Since
then, its Microsoft Bing-powered search revenue grew 14 percent
year-over-year, while total revenue for the recent quarter increased 2 percent
year over year. More changes are expected to come under Mayer, including
positioning Yahoo to take advantage of mobile traffic, and highly customized
content paired with calibrated advertising and product recommendations. The

AOL, Inc. Research Report

AOL saw its shares rise following its good performance in its Q4 earnings
report, posting net income of 41 cents per share, up from 23 cents year over
year. The company's surge was due in part by veering away from its core
business to focusing more on content-rich sites like TechCrunch, The
Huffington Post, and hyperlocal news site Patch to name a few, and enhancing
their monetizations within 2012 in the process. The company also cut excessive
costs and redundant employees, bought a substantial amount of stock back, and
doled out dividend payments of $5.15 per share. Recent news indicate that AOL
is close to add another tech-focused website in its fold, electronics review
site gdgt. The company's current tech-focused properties include Engadget,
TechCrunch, and Joystiq. The Full Research Report on AOL, Inc. - including

Linkedin Corporation Research Report

Professional networker LinkedIn recently finished one of the most successful
sessions in the earnings season, soaring 21.27 percent at $162 per share after
shredding analyst expectations in its latest earnings report. Revenues grew at
a whopping 81 percent at $303.6 million from $167.7 million year-over-year,
with an adjusted EPS of 35 cents. The success can be credited to product
innovations like Talent Solutions, its growing premium subscriptions and most
of all, the recent announcement that it already hit 200 million members. A new
service focusing more on job search could increase user base, where users can
perform deeper job searches that will allow them to find open positions in
their fields by Zip code, industry and function, while employers can also look
for prospective hires in a much easier approach. The Full Research Report on
Linkedin Corporation - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and
price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
