There are still those thinking that domains are being overestimated. And yet another domain sale that hits the record. Social.org was sold for 228,600$ on NameJet. This may be considered a big sale, but it is still less then 10% of the price payed for the social.com domain a year ago in an auction. Social.com was sold for 2,600,000$ on a SnapNames auction. Beside these sales, another domain hack soci.al was sold for 50,000$ just a year ago.
It is reported that for the social.org domain, a total of 415 bidders signed up for the heavily promoted auction. This means that the interest in the actual trends in Internet will be always high. If you get a feeling what the content in the next internet will be about, than this is the moment to get a good domain.
