The rise and fall of Facebook?

The tech landscape is littered with tales of outfits that once shone brightly but are now a shadow of their former selves. As the Facebook IPO clock winds down what's in store for the social network.

The wait is almost over and after months of speculation and prognostication the Facebook IPO is almost here. While Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been receiving plenty of kudos for building the social network up from a MySpace wannabe to a $100 billion company, he should perhaps be mindful that there is a big difference between getting to the top and staying there.

The saga playing out at Yahoo should be a handy signpost for Zuckerberg and what’s interesting is that the man temporarily in charge at the ailing internet pioneer, Ross Levinsohn, was once intimately linked to MySpace.
