Cafemom for Sale have you heard this?


Yahoo is looking to acquire CafeMom, a social network of sorts for moms, for $100 million, Kara Swisher at All Things D reports.



CafeMom thinks it's worth much more, like $200 million, according to Kara. She also says Disney is looking at buying CafeMom.


CafeMom said it was profitable on its Web site and sources said its revenues were about $25 to $30 million annually. It says it has 6.7 million unique visitors on its primary site, with 18.7 million on related sites. It serves up 100 million monthly pageviews.


This would be the second biggish recent purchase from Yahoo. It spent $100 million buying Associated Content earlier this year

  • I hope Disney doesn't buy it. They'd whitewash it and we couldn't speak our minds!

  • Either way, it doesn't really matter ... the owners will get bored with this site the same way they got bored with ClubMom (yes, same people) and eventually they'll dismantle this one in favor of a new project of the day, the same way they did with the other.
