What I love about this, is that especially with facebook, you can alter how much get's blocked. So now even ads promoting other facebook features and applications (within facebook) are blocked!

It blocks all of the ADS on websites I visit such as facebook, but mostly importantly youtube. I hate 30 second ad videos and it blocks them all

Almost perfect! Been using ABP for a year and only twice has it had a relapse and stoped blocking ads. Cant sem to figure out why, any ideas?
Works great with ALL facebook suggestions :D

I was going to take the drastic step of removing my Facebook account because of the insane amount of ads that started appearing in my feed, but then stumbled across this App. LOVE IT!
This is only an excerpt of people who have taken their precious time to review this app. Behind a few, there is many.
There are over 200 million downloads of this app already. Assuming each person downloads the app twice, that is 100million users. Now that is 10% of Facebook users estimated who are not being exposed to ADS, facebooks main revenue source.
What happens when they roll-out video? I think people are going to be very upset, and look for solutions to this problem. Luckily they exist, and AdBlock knowing that facebook has over 1 billion users, is going to be very interested in getting their app known to users.
In my honest opinion, this is just another reason why this company needs to diversify itself first before we go on giving it obnoxious multiples of 30 PE.
Ive got excess reasons to dump this all the way down to $18 where it belongs.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
No one is willing to pay 30 times earnings.. Max is 20 times earnings, and that is generous, higher than competitors in the same space. Why not 30? because
1) It is not growing as fast as people expected.
2) Unproven sustainability
3) Failed Execution and poor management
4) Cost structure becoming worse
The bottom line is, there is no bottom line in Facebook. ITs not making any MONEY. There is way cheaper valuations out there. Look at google 17 FPE, yahoo 17 FPE.
Video ADS are a huge risk, they may work or they may scare users. who knows, but it is NOTa wonderful idea, its an OK idea. And that is why the smart money is scared, no one buys this because it is not proven completely.
Its just a lottery ticket right now. Investors are not risk seekers, they are risk averse. The risk is knocking on the door saying hey I can lose you 30% because im too expensive right now, or I can make you 30% if things go well.
Jeffreys was wrong. The risk reward ratio is not as good as they make it sound. that's a 1:1 risk reward. Buy this at 19, where it is valued fairly and risk reward is 3:1. When are people looking to buy? Ask yourself this, be smart. And good luck.
Suddenly Facebook is an expert in marketing and is going to be telling professional marketers how to do their job?
Not only that, but they are offering fewer advertising options? Isn't that directly correlated with ad sales? The more the merrier? Lower options to advertise means lower value for advertisers?
Am I the only one sharing these views? Please enlighten me.
using the justified PE assuming FB pays out half its earnings then FB Justified PE is:
Required return: 3+1.58*7.5= 14.85%
Sust Growth: E(x) ROE * RetRat = 25*.5 = 12.5
JPE= .5/(.1485- .125) = 21.27
* F(PE) 0.84 = 17.87/share
There you go, $18 a share is justified if ROE for the next year is 25% (which it wont be for several years to come), the company pays out 50% of its earnings (which we assume), Retain 50%, Expect Profits to be 0.84/share for 2014.
SO this would need to be a one hit wonder to be valued at $38, which apparently it wasn't, and now we are in re correction. Don't worry $18 is not bad, but holding this until then would be a bad idea. You can buy at $18 and rest assured it won't go down easily from there. Right now there is too much risk IMO.
answer me this?
You can make shtt taste sweet but not for long
markets gonna get indigestion once they know what they swallowed, and Jeffreis is just feeding this shtt cake to you, i hope you like it
Enough said. Read that article on companies using personal data to see if your credit is good, if you are a potential criminal, if you qualify for a job, what the hell.
I use facebook, but that is just #$%$. How can they sell peoples information like that?
Just another reason to be short this POS.
I say we all poor diesel on this POS, grab hands, and sing cumbaya.
Got excess reasons to be short this now.
Faith is such a profitable emotion..
yeah, everything is going to be ok. Don't worry about it, just keep buying..
Unless your asking for a bounce to short higher, then you wouldn't be as dumb as I think you are.
The prospects of Facebook might be good, but with this sort of management, harnessing that is impossible.
Why does Warren Buffet invest only in solid management? Exactly.
Facebook Home should have been released when it was fully developed and tested, not as a half #$%$ working app that completely ruins the smartphone user experience.
Anyone with half a brain could have executed the delivery better. This is what happens when a "mature" company acts like a child.
They literally killed the HTC, oh my god, and now all that time they have been spending on Facebook Home, with the millions they make, and this is what they produced?? Its like those #$%$ Atari games that were released before even tested, common..
In poker when you show your hand and your caught bluffing, your done. that is why people are shorting this. Because faith has made this stock a bubble, and now its bursting, back to reality folks.
