Outlook For Facebook IPO
This article mentions Google as a Facebook IPO play.
Facebook just missed their last quarter by $600,000,000. As I said before Facebook=Branding, Google=Sales. You can't even compare Click Through and Conversions. Goog blows Facebook away. Facebook is a strong company and will continue to grow. Google will continue to grow as a larger chunk of advertising continues to migrate to the internet. You guys are all missing the significance of Youtube. Display ads on Youtube will have a significant impact to Goog revenues. Youtube is massive and if Goog can seemlessly tie Goog+ to Youtube, than there is a chance Facebook will lose out in the long run. If Larry Page takes Steve Jobs advice and focuses on Search and Youtube, then Goog will continue to grow rapidly.
