Facebook accounted for 64% of total closed transactions, followed by Zynga with 12%. LinkedIn, Bloom Energy and Silver Spring Networks tied for third with 6% each. Twitter and MobiTV took most of the rest with 3% each.

SecondMarket also tracks buy side interest, even if no shares are listed for those companies. eHarmony, Groupon, Huffington Post and Skype all registered new interest. Funny, it looks like buyside interest in TechCrunch stock also increased by 100% in Q2, As far as I know, no one’s selling.
