... Was it a good idea?
Horrible idea. FB isn't a 10 year company, if 5 years, and it is horribly monetized. Don't waste your money.
Dot com's on the share market never really do well.
Do you see facebook being the leader in the market in 10 years time?
Did you really? Either you have a couple hundred thousand to play with, or you purchased conditional shares on pre-order.
It will do as well as Yahoo ....
It's a gamble eh? I'd say at the very least it's an aggressive short term (3 year) investment unless she surprises us all and usurps Google's search engine position. Could happen!
How much have you invested?
I wish I understood this kind of stuff better.
totaly good idea I guess!!!
Nobody needs facebook. Everybody needs Google. Bad idea...
well as of now only zurk was the decision taker ... and facebook was a viral thing which spread through word of mouth... facebook does't spend on marketing.... so now when they have a huge capital to invest and some of the industries best market analytic ..... just see how facebook grows....
Zuckerburg isn't interested in making money with Facebook. The monetization method sucks. It's really only good for brand awareness. I would not buy it.
"At $38, Facebook is priced more than 100 times its profit -- a steep premium compared with Google at 18 times earnings and Apple at 13 times."
The company is way overvalued...
I'd much rather be invested in apple which I am. Apple makes a Billion in profit a week (from their last quarterly earnings report) and has $110 Billion in cash!!!
"Right now, this all seems like a big deal," Zuckerberg said before ringing the bell. "Going public is an important milestone in our history. But here's the thing. Our mission isn't to be a public company. Our mission is to make the world more open and connected."
I can't believe he said that really??? Doesn't sound good for a shareholder at all!

FB has seen its day. If he can make the right acquisitions then he will be able to stay alive
Deleted Facebook in December
Life without Facebook > Life with
Do I even notice life without? No.
Google on the other hand....take that away and Id be out of a job.
I think OP is a joker
it will pull back to the low 30's this week. So you should buy another fake 100,000 shares then.
Regular investors were shut out of FB's initial IPO. So you didn't invest in shit OP.
And their debut was a failure, they needed to get underwriter's to prop up their stock, it barely broke even. Anyone with FB stock will right now will be disappointed in a couple months.
The main reason why you shouldn't invest with FB is, that unlike a company like McDonald's which will definitely be here in 5, 10, 20 years and has a very low chance of a competitor wiping them out, FB can be gone as quickly as they become uncool. FB is desperately trying to expand, you might see websites replacing their comment system with FB comments, and to login to certain websites all you need is your FB details. But in the end they will be like MySpace. Things that are cool favor the new. That's why G+ failed, no one wants a profile page with a search engine company.
Stop raging at my site...
Just joking, i really don't know what'll happen tbh. I think it'll be around for a long time to come, though.
