"It's common to have hundreds or even thousands of 'friends' on Facebook, 'connections' on LinkedIn and 'followers' on Twitter. Although such networks provide great opportunities for entrepreneurs, securities laws make it virtually illegal to ask members of a social network to invest small amounts in a microenterprise. The good news: A package of common-sense bills that passed the House overwhelmingly Thursday night would give securities laws an update for the Facebook age." (11/04/11)
