I caught some of that show and I gotta say it was not a FB failure. That lady was so stupid Dr. Phil had to tell her twice that Bill was the guy in the picture who felt for the woman and empathized that he too had lost a husband of many years and Richard was fake guy from Africa scammer. Just goes to show a fool and their money soon part. $300k and a Benz/BMW she sends this guy depleting her life's savings. Wow. Of course I feel bad for the lady who appeared to be so lonely that she longed for a relationship which the scammer was glad to fake to get at her $. Sad. I blame FB for a lot but can't really say this was FB's fault. Copy / Paste the FB photo of Bill and then entered a dating site with that photo as Richard. Sad. Scamming scum preying on elderly older woman. Wow!
will we get a reversal tomorrow or is this the elevator down button to the SPX 200 DMA
a strong jobs report may bring more downside Fri. we shall see
targeting Chinese protestors - stealing their text msgs photos etc for those using iphone or ipad
exactly LOL, I would say simply divide their stated number in half but ur right it could be higher.
wrong as usual Lee. As the Ad exec. said on CNBC they do not know the ads work they are simply placing the ads up in front of the most people which fb offers scale. Further point was that is why they are excited by Atlas they are hoping with the tracking to get the conversion information tracking the ad impression all the way to the purchase across devices. Of course you know what the result will be there - same as "GIFTS". Know your exit point.
set firefox to not accept 3rd party cookies, and drop cookies and history after each session. Using ABP helps too.
snoop city looks like. when will the wend user learn... drop your browser cookies after each session and use an ad blocker. This tracking thing is getting pretty good, I pulled down my adblocker plus and got a sponsored ad on either yahoo or comcast for "How to pick an auto repair place" which tells me I must have some history or persistent cookies that are triggering. It was fun to watch the ad disappear when I turned ABP back on.
truth telling - gives investors who need that insight. Really all u need to do is look at the 19B spent on acquiring a message ap, Gifts failure, Buy Button if implemented will tell a story, same with Atlas which looks to be an incredible deal cut by FB to buy, however the story will be same as Buy Button if Atlas succeeds in their tracking.
Upshod know your exit points.
algorithm trading at its best... fear panic sell, momo up buy more... really idiotic way to invest, but then it is not investing but rather trading for massive share quants.
Buy the fear when the time is right which is what I do.
no one goes to FB for ECommerce - FB GIFTS failure was a perfect example of this. They go there to share cat pictures etc. and connect with family and "friend" Plus you have to look at the quality of your audience in terms of do they have the capital to spend or are they a bunch of mouchers and freeloaders. FB Fails there too IMO.
The more he talked about the tracking capabilities the more I think I will be correct. If Atlas works it will be able to track FB users across device platforms and into stores for the conversion stat which thus far eludes most advertisement media. Andrew asked a really good question (rare) in that he said he remembers ads in print news paper or magazines but does not for online ads. Miles Nadal, of MDC Partners the ad guru guy answered Andrews question by talking about Ad impressions and frequency but what it came down to was a guess or a bet in terms of conversion and where you can put the ad in front of the most people.
So that confirms my thoughts on FB they do not know if the Ads work - they are guessing and betting that if they put the ad up in front of more people it will work.
If Atlas works we will no longer have to guess. This is where I think FB will fail. Just like "Gifts" and just like the missing "BUY BUTTON".
ck out the video yourself on CNBC entitled "Advertising's social media push" time stamped 8:23 AM ET
From the looks of FB stock loss this morning I guess maybe others may be thinking along the same line. Down 2 bucks and change.
mistake above if euro is falling which it is 1.26EU / 1US is what I saw, that is less inflation for US. Also with less more US production of crude & NG obviously this would not be an inflationary scenario since crude is Euro not US dollar based. OK - with that correction - carry on.
if there are no other related cases. Are you kidding me. Anyone traveling back from Africa should be screened and isolated before they have contact with anyone. Better yet lets isolate them in Africa before they get on a plane. Do you know how many contacts can occur during the incubation period. Mind boggling.
I almost fell over when I heard the CDC isolation procedures.
This is serious stuff here.
1st US case in Dallas. Coming in from Liberia.
bf5, almost got your hamburger omen confirmation but failed on 9/22/14. no cigar. If you must know the detail well...
Got the HO on 9/18 & 9/19 so just needed the Monday for 3 in a row confirm on Hindenburg Omen and as we all now know Monday was a big down day so no confirm due to failure on new 52 week highs which were swamped by new 52 week lows.
Been seeing several up days recently which I called divergent due to bad breadth - which I posted - you might have noticed the odor since ur a mkt technician. Not looking for anything to ominous - but it is coming into Oct. & it is a mid-term presidential cycle - so be on guard. Buy the fear if it comes. I decided not to play vol. with VXX cause we are just not in that part of the cycle yet. Secular/or is it the Cyclical Bull is still intact till rates normalize. Watch 3 steps and a stumble as Fed starts to pop the short end to normalize rates 2015 stuff.
