    It is amazing!!!!

    I did not think FB would do anything after reading so very many items condemning the new IPO before it was released. Even my Broker described it as buying into a 'lottery' and we all know how many 'winners' are made from the lottery! I decided against purchasing the IPO.

    One point I do notice about comments on FB from the hundreds of discontented, angry purchasers of the hoped for 'successful. IPO. The quality of the things so many people write in their comments is strange! Someone who owns quality stocks and the ones people DO make money on - their written statements are mostly polite, some have questions and some make statements showing disappointment in their choices OR the actual market with reference to their stocks.
    Sadly the average comments from the many people on FB shows a definite ignorance especially in the way they write their comments. Many have to use filth in their descriptions, vulgarity and XXX statements. Is it possible the average person who did invest in FB are from a lower class of citizens? Does it assist them to read the dirty messages, insults and vulgar comments about people and the actual stock?
    Does not make the readers feel sorry for the hundreds of losers out there - just shows lack of education because a quality person would be able to describe their disappointment WITHOUT the use of vulgarity, and personal filthy insults against the CEO, his family and employees. Today on FOX news, they said FB planning to start a second face book specially for teenage kids. Could this be an answer to possibly a profit ahead for face book investors. In this instance I do wish all the investors better luck in the near future.
