BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Just like that, the "Wall Street darling" status once held by social networking stocks is gone. Long gone.It was only a handful of months ago that social media companies -- and private equity names in general -- were getting plenty of positive press that coincided with a slew of high-profile IPOs. In fact, internet businesses were one of the few industry groups that actually plowed higher in mid-to-late 2011, as the rest of the market got shaken around by debt ceiling drama here at home and the ongoing European debt crisis across the pond.
