Yes, it's called conscience. FB exists mostly by selling ads based on personal information they collect about their users. One thing I looked in a company is what they actually do and whether its something I agree with. But I understand that some people only care about profits.
Pumping = positive sentiment and buying (not what few idiot analysts are spewing forth). FB has been WS darling for quite some time in case you haven't noticed. If WS didn't like the company it would not be valued this high.
Why is it that any negative comment about this company makes you a "short"? Yes, this is investment forum but I'll bet that most people here are not foolish enough to short this stock while WS is pumping it.
You cannot. Everything you post on facebook belongs to the company. Do you think they will actually wipe your data clean because you had a change of heart?
My message is not ridiculous if you take time to think about it. I despise what facebook does and I think that supporting a company that preys on its customers is wrong - regardless of your profits. Investing in companies like FB simply enables them to pursue their predatory behaviors.
Because you should. Maybe if you lost all your money you will start carrying... but my guess is that it probably won't make a difference.
You need to educate yourself on the intended purpose of tin foil helmets. While you're at it, I suggest you read some research on the effects of facebook's "disruptive" technologies on human development.
If that's the case, why don't they release usage stats by region and by application? It's selective statistical reporting and it's not what real transparency should look like.
