Welcome to the Social Media Bloodbath

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and chief technology officer Jeremy Phillips discuss topics across the investing world.

Over the past year, Jeremy and Eric have been discussing the opportunities that will arise after the Facebook IPO. Mainly, they believe many of the weaker players like Yelp and Groupon will rightly be beaten down, and take high-quality companies like LinkedIn with them. The pair believes that when this happens, there will be a very strong buying opportunity in LinkedIn.

Facebook recently became the largest company ever to IPO. Yet,all the buzz around this social media monster could prove off-base as Facebook has deep problems converting its millions of members to sales. We've created a new report, "Forget Facebook -- Here's the Tech IPO You Should Be Buying," which details a much better social media stock that has a longer runway for growth than Facebook. The report won't be available forever, so click here to get access today -- it's totally free.
