But there is a picture of a mountain on the lable.
And the plastic is so clear. . .

I find it humorous that tons of investors clamored to buy Facebook stock with hopes of the universal "Like" feature being some sort of panacea for direct marketing... only to realize that yes, the majority of people on Facebook will "like" shiat they either can never afford or have no real intention of purchasing.

FTA The 28-year-old co-founder looked confident in a gray T-shirt and jeans

Sounds like he's really taking this seriously. I mean, a clean T-shirt! What more could you ask?

I do agree that wall-street by and large is underestimating what Facebook is capable but I suspect its potential lies in the "epic fail" department.

While your analysis of the whole thing is a bit simplistic, I totally see where you're going.  So staying just on that point... the big problem here is there is no "dislike" button.  How many people "like" something is irrelevant when not compared to how many "dislike" something.

I was one of those suckers who bought FB at $38 a share.

I am one of those idiots who is still holding onto them.

/hoping that one day it will turn into a profit. If not, I'll just put it in the same category as "all those times I bought shots for other people".

Would you like to buy the Brooklyn bridge or some nice Florida swamp vacation land?

P/E isn't everything, but just for kicks I went and looked and I can't believe LinkedIn is still in the triple digits. Holy crap, really people? You think advertisers are going to spend 100x as much on LinkedIn as facebook?

Investors are weird.

Their P/E is in the low triple digits, so no.

I am amazed anyone even bought into their hype, they provide no service other than infidelity of people hooking up with old flames, I bet facebook is one of the biggest reasons for divorce right now.

Other than bullshiat people asking me to water their shiat or join their mob there is nothing facebook has to offer, I have whittled my friends list down to under 50 people I give a rats ass about and will probably be getting rid of most of those since they keep putting ads up on their status. Anyone who bought facebook stock got what they deserved.

I could see linkedin being more of a good investment over facebook, all facebook has are old people putting up pictures of kids, once it loses its hip factor the sites are dead, just ask myspace.

Linkedin was never hip so its value is more to business than anything else and that is at least something.

if you were looking to hire someone as CEO to right the good ship Facebook, would your search end up with Snickerberg?

Only simpletons would buy (put) stock in social media. It's a very fickle thing. I knew it'd never amount to anything, and not because I loathe facebook, but because I have common sense.

No question LinkedIn is more valuable per user, and will be there for the long haul, but P/E of 500-1000 for over a year is insane.

LinkedIn has better non-advertising revenue streams (premium accounts, etc)...not that this justifies a three figure P/E....just saying I wouldn't be surprised if LinkedIn makes 100x more money per user than facebook.

A friend had a hot pile of fresh cash to invest. I told her "DO NOT buy FaceBook." She's now very grateful for following my advice.

/OK, so it was a good call. Not a brilliant one by any stretch, but still...
