    Curious what you people think about such an investment?

    I did a small research and decided that its not going to be a smart one.

    First, because I tend to trust Warren Buffett's words when it comes to investments, and that guy thinks that such an investment is too risky:

    Second, because Facebook's popularity is going down in US and UK (judging by Google Trends), and knowing how the world works I suspect the same is going to start in other parts of the globe very soon:

    Like you've said it is very risky.

    I think short term it has the ability to make a fair bit (if you buy enough shares). But i don't see it being a good long term investment. But who knows, maybe facebook will become the new Google one day o_O!

    What Warren Buffet said is completely right.
