Don't Look Facebook Gifts In The Mouth
By: Aristotle Munaiiiz
It just hasn't dawned on the market that Facebook's connections -- not just the 955 million active users, but the more than 100 billion friendship connections -- can turn this into a juggernaut that will make Amazon and Google (Nasdaq: GOOG ) seem tame in comparison.
Yes, Google. Just as Gifts has the ability to deal Amazon a blow by transforming the gifting process, Facebook has already gone public with its intentions to revolutionize search by making it far more personal.
Right now, it may be easier to laugh at CEO Mark Zuckerberg's dreams of raising the bar on e-commerce and search than to respect Facebook's advantages. That would be a costly mistake if you happen to be shorting Facebook or waiting for a more opportune time to buy in.
You'll thank me, and I won't even be expecting a Facebook Gift from you when I'm right.
