Nevertheless, I don’t think it’s a name that would be worth anything to them. Had they any interest in the Social Inbox branding, I am sure they would have bought SocialInbox.com.

$5K and $500K is not the same thing regardless how big the company is. People works within the organization maybe wasteful and incompetent..but they don’t announce to the world like that. Be careful what you say if you are lucky enough to hold a job at this time. Just a friendly reminder..people are watching.

Not the same thing, but I do understand your point.

Unfortunately for Facebook, HubSpot would be in the negotiation power seat, and could say they wouldn’t sell the domain name without selling the entire company, and that could cost way more than $500k. They could also tell FB it would cost $10m for the domain name. They may not need the cash, so the ball is in their court.

Had they gone to buy it a couple of months ago, it would have been less than $5k and they would control the domain name to match their product name.

I don’t think owning ProjectTitan.com was important, but if they refer to it as Social Inbox, then this domain name would have been something they should have thought about buying. Too late now.
