    That's a current Yahoo main headline. FB is the new growth story. With FB's consistent news releases of their advancements, new offerings, and monetizations of instagram, and Messeger, is any investor seriously worried about their future, NOT. Let's not forget their Virtual Reality market with Oculus product release was sold out in minutes. That's speaks the future dominance of FB socila media as well as Virtual Reality market. FB has many plans for VR aside from gaming and their incorporating it with FB. And FB has more acquired businesses to monetize yet. That's a whole lot of growth ahead that will retire many investors. Long term chart still on Uptrend. GL

  • That is the headline people with Facebook F8 conference today. You all know the talk is going to be all Growth. Their FB Messnger just crossed 900 Million users. WhatsApp crossed 1 Billion users, instagram over 400 Million users, Oculus with the huge Virtual Reality market. So much future revenue to tap into. Facebook can highlight any one of their businesses at the conference. Facebook has a great management that attracts the best talent and is so well positioned for DOMINANCE with their strategically acquired businesses. Facebook's instagram users alone has beaten twitter...DOMINANCE! And heading into another quarterly earnings report in just a couple of weeks! Long term chart still in Uptrend. GL

    FB has come off of overbought status and found support off the base of its near term ascending trend line drawn from Jan of this year. From a slightly longer term perspective there's an ascending channel stemming from July of 2015 to current which FB is trading midway up from. Aside from external influences of the markets, the positives short term wise is FB still has room to rise technically to the top end of these ascending channels. And last, the long tern chart for the investors, FB is still on Uptrend. GL

    "Facebook, Apple, Alphabet: Which Top Tech Stock Is Growing Fastest?"
    MATTHEW GALGANI 2:08 PM ET

    "The mantra for the stock market is essentially, “What have you done for me lately? And what’s next?” It creates unending pressure on companies to continually grow and innovate.

    "So how are three top tech stocks — Facebook (FB), Apple (AAPL) and Alphabet (GOOGL) — faring in rising revenue and profits?

    Young Guns Vs. Middle-Aged Apple

    Apple officially became middle-aged Friday with its 40th birthday, but its 14% three-year annual sales growth rate and 19% three-year annual EPS growth rate still outpace those of the teenage Alphabet (14% and 13%, respectively).

    But the even younger Facebook trumps both of its fellow tech titans. The social media giant has been growing revenue at an annual rate of 54% over the last three years, while earnings have risen at 71% annually over the same period.

    Facebook’s 55.6% annual pretax profit margin has also allowed founder Mark Zuckerberg to place several multibillion dollar bets on Instagram, WhatsApp and Oculus VR — as well as invest heavily in mobile advertising and new apps like Facebook Messenger. By comparison, Apple (31%) and Alphabet (33.1%) have smaller but still strong profit margins.

    After breaking out last June, Facebook started pulling back just a few weeks later. It reset the base count during the August flash crash, launching what has become a three-part, base-on-base formation.

    Samsung introduced its next big thing a launch event in Barcelona last night, and it wasn’t a smartphone.

    The company’s latest flagship mobile device, the Galaxy S7, was more of a supporting act to a bigger theme that Samsung is chasing along with other electronics manufacturers: virtual reality.

    Members of the audience were treated to Samsung’s latest Gear VR headsets at the launch event, through which they could watch a 360-degree video of people playing freestyle soccer on the streets of Barcelona.

    Once everyone removed their headsets, they were surprised to see Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg grinning up on stage in his grey t-shirt. He wasn’t there to talk about the S7, but the promise of virtual reality.

    Virtual reality was the next platform, he told the audience. “It’s going to change the way we live and work and communicate."

  • Facebook creates social VR team ahead of Oculus Rift release in March
    "Facebook creates social VR team ahead of Oculus Rift release in March"
    "Facebook founder confirms Minecraft is coming to Oculus VR."
    By Jake Smith for iGeneration | February 21, 2016 -- 20:31 GMT (12:31 PST)

    "Facebook has formed a social virtual reality team with two former executives from the video game industry at the helm, the company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced at Mobile World Congress.

    The new social VR team will work with both Oculus and other teams at Facebook to explore how VR and social interaction collide together.

    Zuckerberg made the announcement during Samsung's press event on Sunday. Samsung and Facebook's Oculus have worked together on Samsung's Gear VR.

    "This team will explore how people can connect and share using today's VR technology, as well as long-term possibilities as VR evolves into an increasingly important computing platform," the company wrote in an official blog post.

    CNET: Facebook wants to put the "social" in virtual reality

    Zuckerberg also announced that more than 200 games and apps are now available for the platform in the Oculus store, and users have already watched more than a million hours of video in Samsung's Gear VR. Furthermore, users have uploaded 20,000 videos in the 360-degree format to Facebook, after it added the feature in 2015.

    The social VR team is led by two executives from the video games industry, Daniel James and Mike Booth, who both have backgrounds in creating 3D multiplayer experiences, according to the Financial Times.

    "VR is the next platform, where anyone can experience and share anything they want. VR is going to be the most social platform," Zuckerberg said.

    Facebook is placing big bets on VR. The social network bought Oculus for $2 billion in 2014 and plans to ship the Oculus VR headset next month.

    "Oculus’ New $99 Samsung Gear VR Makes Serious Virtual Reality Affordable"
    Sep 24, 2015 by Josh Constine (@joshconstine)

    At half the price of its last mobile VR headset, the new $99 Oculus-made Samsung Gear VR is cheap enough to unlock virtual reality for the mainstream. Revealed today at the Oculus Connect conference, it works with the whole 2015 line of Samsung Smartphones including the Note 5, S6, S6 Edge, and S6 Edge+. It will ship in November in time for Black Friday. Compared to the $199 previous Gear VRs that only worked with fewer phones, this headset will be a lot more accessible.

    The new Gear VR is 22% lighter, making it more comfortable to wear. The trackpad on the temple of the headset also now has a tactile directional pad on it so your finger will know where it’s touching. The previous Gear VRs had a smooth trackpad and sometimes it was to tough to know if you were touching it or just the unsensitive shell of the headset when you couldn’t see for yourself.

    There’s also a new Gear VR Gamepad which all the Oculus Connect conference attendees will get for free. It features an Xbox-style dual-stick design.

    While many are highly anticipating the flagship Oculus Rift headset release, the fact that it needs to be wired to an expensive gaming computer means it will have a much more niche audience. But the Gear VR and other mobile headsets like Google Cardboard that people can carry around with them and easily share with VR n00bs are what will bring the medium to the masses."

    "Mark Zuckerberg: Virtual reality can become the most social platform"
    Edward C. Baig, USA TODAY 7:36 p.m. EST February 21, 2016

    "BARCELONA — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made a surprise appearance at Samsung’s Mobile World Congress press conference Sunday to talk up progress in virtual reality and to promote VR in the future as “the most social platform.”

    Facebook, of course, paid some $2 billion in 2014 to buy Oculus which has been working with Samsung on its Gear VR consumer headsets. In fact, Zuckerberg appeared on stage during the MWC event just after audience members took off the Gear VR headsets they had donned to experience virtual reality during Samsung’s presentation.

    “Pretty soon we’re going to live in a world where everyone has the power to share and experience whole scenes as if you’re just there, right there in person,” Zuckerberg says. “Imagine being able to sit in front of a campfire and hang out with friends anytime you want. Or being able to watch a movie in a private theater with your friends anytime you want. Imagine holding a group meeting or event anywhere in the world that you want. All these things are going to be possible. And that’s why Facebook is investing so much early on in virtual reality. So we can hope to deliver these types of social experiences.”

    Facebook also said Sunday it had formed a team to create social interactions in virtual reality. The team will work with Oculus and others at Facebook. It also said it was bringing its streaming technology for 360 video to Samsung Gea

    Facebook today retested the previous high of 110 area twice and found support and on 3rd attempt exceeded below that level to 109 area by market forces but still regained support. It is normal action on breakout to retest prior resistance which was old high 110 area. I perceive that was successful retest for today.
