    FB is amazing, not a shareholder myself but I wish I was smart enough to understand how amazing Mark Zuckerberg is.

     

    Oh well.

    That is an absurd comment. FB most likely will not exist in 10yrs.

    More like $200 billion, no? Are the shares from the Whatsapp acquisition already being considered?

     

    The stock had been going straight up for days with optimism regarding a possible beat. Yet, it still jumped on the beat. The market is unable to discount anything at this point.

    I can scenarios where FB grows a ton more. To FB bulls, does that mean GOOG withers? TWTR bankrupt in 5 yrs?

     

    Or does everyone keep growing and online advertising is like 40% of GDP?

    It seems like it, RW, but adverts don't actually produce anything. I'm reminded of the ad company who crowed about how "we're wealth creators" after a successful campaign for one american auto manufacturer, apparently unaware that the increased sales for their clients, weres mostly at the expense of fewer sales for their US rivals...

    FB.....Right in front of our eyes....We all use it in some way....? Let's see if Wall Street rewards FB - it is unusually volatile. Yet is is stronger than all other online sights except Google. A billion users....that's a lot of people....IT is priced quite cheaply compared to other internet sites IMHO.

    Net income more than doubled Y/Y, which should drive down P/E.

    I lose. Good game guys. Congrats :-)

     

    I'm hanging it up on Facebook. This was always the quarter I was sure would be the one. Unless there is something ridiculous under the covers, it's over.

     

    Enjoy my money!

    it is 185 billion dollar company with about 10 billion in revenue. Not an 80 billion dollar company. Is this going to 300 or 400 billion? it has peaked.

    I do not own FB but I will say as a tourism business it is a powerful and inexpensive advertising vehicle. I spend less than half of what I used to spend 10 years ago on advertising and it is large city newspapers that I have cut out. The internet has changed everything for my type of business. 5 years ago Google adwords were my best form of advertising; 3 years ago it was Trip Advisor; Now it is Facebook by a long shot. I am using maybe 10% of the opportunity that FB offers me and will keep expanding my use. My ability to drill down into the exact type of guest I prefer is outstanding. As teens move on to Instagram, the older demographics with real money are still actively engaged in FB. I can't say that this will be the case in 2 or 3 years but for now Facebook outperforms. I won't buy the stock but I understand how it has value.
