  • She's holding up pretty well considering the barrage of negative world news. Feeling good about 80+ in Sep.

    Wise words for one's own inner peace. I don't wish losses on anyone but a nice FB pop this qtr will significantly help me get my small business off the ground. Been holding 9500 shares since $29 and for over a year now, so I think the risk-reward for me tells me to hold. Hoping World Cup helped with higher Ad rates and engagement enough.

    Funny story.... I passed on buying 10k shares of TSLA and went with FB instead a few mins later. That move cost me about $2M in profits. So close, so close.

    Be patient. Be humble. Good luck guys.

    So FB, a $175 BILLION company can't hire security experts from Amazon, Paypal or other financial institutions? With money and expertise ANY website can offer the same level of security as those websites that you trust with your credit card info. Don't be ignorant.

    FB is putting together the pieces of a gigantic puzzle. Recent changes by FB:

    1. Apply for eCommerce license from Bank of Ireland

    2. Released App Links which allows the FB mobile app to link to a specific page in an app. So if you click an Ad, you can for example, be taken directly to the Amazon mobile app for the product you clicked on and can finalize your purchase.

    3. Showing you ads based on the websites you visit.
    So if you're in the market for a pair of running shoes for example, and you search outside of FB, when you go back to FB you'll see those shoes in your Ads.

    4. Now they add a Buy button and will allow you to store your credit card info with them just like Amazon.

    This is shaping up nicely!

    Just as a side note, my wife buys and sells 2-3 items a month. Mainly toys for the kids. She has completely stopped using craigslist and now uses FB exclusively. She posted our deck furniture for sale and in LITERALLY 45 secs she got 3 users asking to buy it (from one of the local groups). I tried this again with our old dishwasher and within minutes there were several takers. MZ's focus on scale has truly paid off and so will WhatsApp with its half a billion users.

    Food for thought.

    Sorry but what you said MADE NO SENSE AT ALL. It will take a newborn baby 16 years to turn 16, yes we know that. But it will take a 15yr old just a few months to turn 16. What you need to know is how many people are turning 13 each quarter and roughly divide that by 7 to guesstimate FB growth (minus the deaths of course) and assuming the growth rate is the same.

    So basically, don't blame politicians or policy if the market goes down, investors should blame themselves? BS.

    Wrong. If you see lots of BMW ads stating they won some best car category (for example) but GOOG filters out ads from Audi,Lexus,Benz, etc because they make less on those ads, isn't that manipulation just as well? Wake up America. Ads go to the highest bidder and NO webpage is UNBIASED. And as far as I've read, this was just a FB test, not the way they normally run the news feeds.

    yet, IF she leaves you'll prob be the first one saying that FB is going down do to lack of leadership, even though you just said her contributions are "minimal at best". #youcanthaveitbothways

    in my experience .... these "mind games" investors play with themselves have more impact on their decisions than sound DD. It is what it is ... sometimes we are on the wrong end of it ... sometimes not. So now I just try to stay ahead of the curve and ride this s. o. b. as best I can. I've prob doubled my typical annual returns that way too btw.
