Payperpost Acquires .... "a company"

So, what company did they acquire? This is coming only a short time after Google.com announces they have acquired advertising company, Doubleclick. Could they have collected another advertising company in hopes of getting more advertisers? Did they acquire another community in hopes of getting more bloggers? Technorati? Text-link-ads? eBay?

I know, we can all dream, right? In case you haven't heard, Payperpost is a website that offers bloggers the chance to make money from an advertiser that has chosen them to post on a blog about an online ads they pay for. If you have a new product and you want BUZZ, you pay us bloggers to create that buzz with some short quick posts about the product and we are in turn given a portion of the payment made to Payperpost. Critics have gone wild stating that this will only corrupt the blogsphere with blog posts for products and services the bloggers have never seen or used. I, on the other hand, think it's a good thing for bloggers. They have followers; they are an audience that a major advertiser may want to reach. What is wrong with paying money to get your ad out there in front of people you want to sell a product or service too?

The online buzz that a blog can create is priceless. Payperpost.com puts the bloggers out there with the advertisers’ ads and makes it all happen quite seamlessly. I think that no matter what type of company it is, Payperpost.com has already had to of figured that it will be better for the Posties.
