Facebook (FB +3.1%) is rallying again today after Baird's Colin Sebastian provides a favorable take on the company's mobile ad network plans. "Facebook is amassing the most comprehensive user profile database in existence," Sebastian asserts, and this could allow it to "become a more relevant ad network than Yahoo (YHOO) and AOL," as well as take on display ad leader Google (GOOG).

    "Survey says...!?" (80-85% of FB users don't click on adds.) It might not matter how well they know their user population.

    I agree as well as the ability to monetize that user base whenever they choose.

    He is right, Facebook will be very profitable for years to come. It will be around long after the naysayers are dead in their graves.
