#$%$ off content providers by selling their personal info and shove ads in their faces in return. That encourages usesage how? Could any FB longs please explain how that works? Is there some kind of profit sharing for users? What am I missing?
Ya well its a good strategy sometimes and sometimes not in a long term bull it usually works we have been in an extended bull for stocks and a bear market for bonds for a long time actually since about 1980 so good timing for you! But it is about to change. ever look at how long it took prices to recover after 1929 or the nikkei after 1980, it wont return to those highs in my lifetime. And really this is nothing personal. Thats great that you are up! But if you miss out on realizing your profits its not so great. I don't understand how you think it is but fine if you do. What I am talking about is FB business plan. They have collected a lot of personal data its like money in the bank for them. I cant say for sure when it will flame out but why will people continue to give away personal info to get ads in their face? That is my point. It has nothing to do with how you value your gains.
oh that means it will only go up!!! not
Do you realize how irrational you are???
past performance is no guarantee of future performance. This is an experiment ... take peoples private content and sell it and hope they dont get too #$%$ off and quit giving it to you. What on earth reason do you think people want their personal info sold especially to shove ads in their face and remind them that is exactly what is happening. Please explain that?????
So far people have been letting FB exploit their proprietary content. But do people really want to be exploited? Nobody needs FB but FB needs everybody and FB is taking content and in return they give you tracking and ads! Long term business models are based on mutual beneficial trade. FB content providers get ads for their content and FB gets $$$$$$$$
exactly past performance is no guarantee of future performance. Number of users is missleading as many FB users are fake. I have over ten myself and only actually use one and even that will be abandon when ELLO is up. Myspace user base grew until it stopped and then? FB is an experiment .... they take their content providers info and sell it and shove ads in their face for providing free content proving to providers that they are being tracked. Its like someone spying on you and then having a door to door salesman come buy and telling you he has what your looking for. Its pretty darn easy to find what your looking for on the net without FB shoving it in your face! Another example is Groupon ... had awesome growth and then? but it had a flawed business model! but it worked for a while.
You buy good content and give it away for free so people tolerate your ads. What FB does is sell their content providers content and then shove ads in their face and then hope the content providers will keep giving away their content and put up with their ads too! all the time reminding them they are being tracked. So what is their plan to keep content providers??? Rub more ads in their face and hope they dont leave! They are already leaving in droves. So how will they possibly increase revenue except possibly for a very short time ... more ads to less user time but its a short term high. No long term business model here.
Users are already not happy and leaving in droves ... FB has reached tipping point. More ads will only accelerate exodus. And that is a business model???
got one for windows ..... was looking up window installations the other day as am helping a friend install his! but zero interest in buying any
maybe they will get up to speed tomorrow???
better yet do some 'fake' searches for products you have zero interest in and be use to use google see how long it takes FB to post an ad on your fake name account!
LOL and I control the trackers ... seriously going to make an app to do fake searches for people ... make all tracking obsolete. sell it on FB! lol why live off the grid when you can screw with these greedy people and have fun!
