Myspace imploded on itself very rapidly. I think Facebook will meet the same demise. All it will take is one slight misstep too many. Or of course, a new, better Facebook alternative. Probably one with privacy controls. Too bad Google+ failed.

China has already implemented all privacy controls. The controls are outsourced to the government.

"Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook in his Harvard dorm room and in eight years built it into the most popular waste of time the world has ever seen." -- Jay Leno

"Facebook is worth $100 billion. Today it was friended by Greece." -- David Letterman

"Mark Zuckerberg and his girlfriend got married — one day after Facebook raised $16 billion on the stock market. Zuckerberg listed the 10 things he loves about her, while she listed the 16 billion things she loves about him. Their reception was annoying, though. Right when everyone got used to the seating arrangement, Zuckerberg changed the layout for no reason." -- Jimmy Fallon

Ok, so I figured it out.
Morgan and Stanley created a farm on FarmVille.
They made a cow called IPO, milked it, and then shot it.
Then they sold it for 100 Billion to another farmer.
They called the farmer and told him they think the cow might be unproductive.

Facebook underwriters may have contributed to weak IPO performance

Two things to avoid


liquidcci View Post
"Mark Zuckerberg started Facebook...


First:
Do NOT invest any minute in this FB website - you could either:
a) lose the big picture about your uncountable "friends"
b) you could have a mortal accident - while checking the latest (alas last) news on FB on the go

Second:
Do NOT invest any buck in the stock - you could either:
a) lose the big picture while constantly staring at the DOM til' doomsday
b) your account may have a mortal exit (alas margin call) - but: you are not alone

GFIs1

Hint of the Day: how to not follow the nerd /ouch - herd
Did I hear millions / billions?

while the FB price actually reached the psychological barrier of 30 bucks

What do you think the chances are that FB moves to NYSE?

That would be awesome in my opinion, NASDAQ needs some more egg on their face.

Facebook IPO’s Youngest Victim: 11-Year-Old Investor Wants His Money Back
A fifth-grade victim of last Friday's technical glitches does not ‘like’ how NASDAQ handled Facebook's IPO.

Sam Lesser isn’t old enough to go on Facebook without his parents’ help. But he may be the youngest victim yet of the social networking site’s turbulent IPO.

Lesser, an 11-year-old investor and business prodigy, tried to buy 300 shares of Facebook stock during the company’s initial public offering last week with more than $10,000 saved up from a small company he set up selling skateboards and bracelets.

But like countless other investors, he still doesn’t know if his order has been filled, due to the numerous glitches that plagued Facebook’s first day of trading on the NASDAQ. He has now been waiting for four days since he first tried to buy the shares, and his attempts to cancel the order have been stymied. “We’ve spoken with three senior traders [at brokerage firm Fidelity] and nobody seems to have any answers,” Lesser’s mom told the New York Post. ““We feel misguided and misled.”

“They are holding my money hostage,” Lesser said. “It’s really disappointing, because we could have made money on this.”

The fact that Lesser was going to give a cut of his profit to Lance Armstrong’s LiveStrong cancer charity is enough to make us want to switch to Google+.

But don’t worry too much about the boy; Lesser should be fine, considering the undisclosed value of his stake in Apple Computer Inc., which he bought when he was five. Apple stock has surged as much as 800% since then.
