Facebook (FB) roundup: 1) Calcalist reports Facebook's buyout talks with Waze have stalled over Waze's insistence on maintaining its Israeli R&D center and keeping all its employees in the country (translation). 2) Another executive departure: Larry Yu, Facebook's PR chief for the last 5 years, is leaving to join a startup. 3) It's not exactly House of Cards, but Facebook is ramping its investment in its Facebook Live original programming series; Live typically features celebrity interviews and instructional videos. 4) BGR reports AT&T is planning to discontinue the HTC First (the closest we've gotten to a Facebook phone) less than a month after its launch. The First's ho-hum specs could be a factor, but chances are Facebook Home's underwhelming debut is as well.

    "According to our source, AT&T sold fewer than 15,000 units nationwide through last week when the phone’s price was slashed to $0.99."

    Does SA ever (and I mean ever) report any good qualities in FB? Every company (even Apple) has bad things as well as good thing happen to it. SA refuses to report any "good" thing, and then lets a writer back in August 2012 write that FB will be at $0.00 before it gets to $30 (Tim) based on NO FACTS! Well I hope not too many SA followers followed got hurt by that. I am not saying FB is Over-Valued or Under-Valued, I just stating the fact that there has been an over abundance of negative articles about FB since its IPO, and it may have been true up to August, but not since! I am LONG FB, and proud to be LONG, because I am not looking for the big gains this year or next, I am a long term holder of companies that will do well in the long run and not the short run.

    Couldn't agree more SMJTrust! It's not just SA, but most of the Wall St "brilliant analysts". Have never seen a so misunderstood company or new technology since say radio first came out and Wall St was down on it because it would never make any money...ditto tv...ditto the internet...Vanity Fair had a great article last month on FB, and on how much money you, SMJ will be making by being on the intelligent side of FB LONG. It can be said for FB, as well as the last presidential election results..."Ignorance is Bliss!"

    It makes me laugh when I see 1/3 of the world's active internet users posting nonsense about themselves, just so that they can feel good about themselves as they envision others admiring what they posted.
