    FB's stock has been a massive disappointment. At the end of the day, the stock was only 23 cents above the initial offering! What do you guys think about the future of FB? The game has changed now, FB will be under massive pressure to rake up profits. And the users will clearly see FB trying desperately to profit from their personal data. FB's future looks troubled to me...

    i don't think they will have any kind of problems. their stock will rise thats for sure. i guess that they will find ways to monetize their super traffic in the near future.

    Facebook has made some privacy decisions that made users very very worried. If they continue with these bad decisions with the user interface, they might have well stayed private.

    this thing will crash and burn. there is no income to justify the 100$ billion valuation which is 100X the income.

    If they don't straighten up soon, they'll be where MySpace is now in five years.

    way to overvalued. their monetization sucks and once they try to monetize better it will bother users too much. therefore I cant see any real value in it. maybe a short term investment could be worth it, if you have enough money to play with.
    They did not crack the dominance of other platforms in russia or japan for example. the only value is their exploration of privacy.I am sure the comment from Gm that FB advertising does not work helped the great start haha. Milk it if thats you source of income and lets watch it collapse.

    You invested? I think you needed a few hundred thousand to invest so impressive you would be so upset it didn't pay off for you.

    I wouldn't touch that stock. Especially as Black Hatters we know better. They brought Instagram for 1 Billion dollars. They gave each Instagram user a value of $33. There is no way that they can convert an instagram user to even $5.00.

    All I have to say is "Do you remember Myspace?"

    if you plan on making money with facebook stocks then your going to need to invest millions for little return on the dollar. I personally would not touch their stock with a shitty stick. Invest your money in something else is my advice.

    It just hit 1 billion users the other day. But theres too much mess with the privacy thing right now. And that glitch 2 weeks ago that made some users private messages get plastered all over their timeline has put me off!

    It will die someday regardless.
