3 of their top executives left on the same day on Monday earlier this week to go work at other start ups. Just FYI.

Wow. Not a good message being sent there.

I also read an article that 80% of their ad hits were by bots. I'll have to dig it up again.

I read one analyst report that $10 is the entry point. IDK.

I'm personally concerned with throwing money at a business where barriers to entry are so low and the customers (mostly young people) are so fickle. I mean, google, bing, etc. can have the next best thing and FB will be a thing of the past. Tough call.

I agree.

I was reading someone who felt it would bounce around 18, with 15 being the next stop.

I am betting on this one going to the single digits.

LOL at any average investor who bought around $30.

Welp, you just busted the rationale for the entire music industry. Bye-bye Nashville.

Nashville has rights to the infor(music) they have.

Facebook does not have any(ok, barely any) rights to the info they have.

Anyone see the documentary on HBO called "Catfish?" Still not sure why it's called Catfish but it's basically about a sad woman in the middle of nowhere creating a facebook account as a young girl that dates this dude over facebook. She went as far as making multiple other facebook pages, buying a separate cell phone, and playing games with this dude for months. One day, he actually showed up to her house and she's this overweight married lady with two seriously disabled kids that can't clean themselves. It was one of the most bizarre things I've ever seen.

That is what facebook has been relegated to.

Be very careful buying options and make sure you can lose all your money in that play. The only way I would buy options is if you knew there was going to be a large price movement in a short period of time. That usually requires inside info or being incredibly lucky.

This. I said in an earlier thread that they don't offer premium services like LinkedIn or great advertising like google. These are key factors in increasing revenue growth. FB does not have either right now. The stock was overvalued and was hyped up by news.
