When was Facebook first mentioned on an earnings call, and other interesting stats from Seeking Alpha's transcripts


Using the Seeking Alpha transcript database, I thought it would be fun to see at how many companies' earnings calls various social networks have been mentioned by executives or analysts.

This is by no means scientific, but here are the results anyway:

  • Facebook -- 160 companies
  • MySpace -- 125 companies
  • Twitter -- 45 companies
  • Bebo -- 13 companies
  • LinkedIn --10 companies

You can find lots of interesting info in the transcripts. Like did you know that the first time Facebook was mentioned on an earnings call was February 2006? You can see the precise context by following this link.

Interesting, huh?
