On today’s edition of MarketFoolery, the daily podcast from The Motley Fool, we discuss the following topics:
- The Federal Reserve announced new rules to limit debit card "swipe fees." Shares of Visa (NYSE: V ) popped, but why are eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY ) shareholders also smiling?
- Google (Nasdaq: GOOG ) has started sending invitations to Google+, the company's latest attempt at a social network. Having failed before, what's going to make Google succeed this time?
- In 2005, News Corp. (NYSE: NWS ) bought MySpace, then the leading social-network site, for $580 million. This week, NewsCorp. sold MySpace for a mere $35 million to a group led by Justin Timberlake. Will he be able to bring profitability (and sexiness) back to MySpace, or did he just buy junk in a box? Our analysts offer some business advice to the multitalented Mr. Timberlake.
