Many of the 103M Facebook (FB) monthly users who only used mobile devices in Q2 appear to be in emerging markets: the company has mentioned 90% of African users rely on phones, and 30% of new Indian users register via phones. The glass half-full view, in light of Facebook's mobile ad issues: these markets are less lucrative to begin with. The glass half-empty view: these markets are now responsible for most of Facebook's user growth.

    Another example of why focusing on the number of users is insane. Income, income, income is what matters.

     

    A business model that involves providing services to users that don't generate revenue has to be questioned.

    Couldn't agree more! Face Book's business model is broken; end of story. Short it; it's going to $7.50 then ZERO by end of 2012.

    When the positive begins to overcome the negative, which it most certainly will, FB will easily break $100. I would put money on it and I have.

    So some poor African living in Mangoland that happens to be on FB isn't likely to buy a new GMC Acadia Denali starting at $44k? I'm shocked!!!!! What a turn of events...

    EVERYONE is short FB, now about 15% of float. They ALL think it's going to 15 so they can cover and all the longs are waiting to snap it up at that same price also. I say it's NOT going there, 20ish is the bottom and the last few trading days the volume has been HUGE with Friday having a pretty nice up day. I don't own FB but I love trading it!
