  • The potential business to be made from Facebook is monster big and most of that not even yet imagined.

  • Nor yet realised, and perhaps never will be.

  • Gwynfryn.....this is where we part company. Much as I'm aware that FB may eventually amount to nothing (hence, the nay-sayers prediction of FB's demise), but I'm very confident that FB will come up with enough innovation and plans to monetize its humongous user base, so I do expect that FB will very likely climb, which is why I've converted from being a Short-seller for a long while since its IPO, until now, I've been long and picking up bits and pieces wherever I can. How long it will take is anyone's guess but it may be sooner that we expect, especially when they are so much at stake.

  • No parting here ben, as I'm planning to trade this stock, once I commit; two good years ahead, I'd say; I'll be just as happy to profit as it goes up, as I will be when it comes back down again (and anything in between).

  • Good to know we're all good and still thinking like great minds. FYI, everytime FB goes up and down far enough, I make at least a couple of dollars on my trades and I've been making as much from going long, as I used to do when I was shorting, so I really don't care whether FB actually appreciates in value, as long as I'm not caught with my pants down. Nonetheless, if the trend is rising, then it's easier to make money going long, which is why I'm picking up this stock on the dips and when it goes down, I continue to pick up more.

  • Hurrah for Fidelity!! Forward thinking and sound judgment. I've got some funds invested with them, so that should look good when FB comes of age within this year (I hope). Nay-sayers are always trying to take advantage of the market to depress prices and make a killing, which is why I never trust those analysts with big firms who recommend BUY or Sell. I would instead trade opposite to their recommendations, to avoid being suckered by them.

  • Congrats to Fidelity in their forward thinking. Social Network marketing is growing... see Mari Smith on Facebook: she knows the game and making a buck at it and has a growing social networking entourage
