-- The hottest IPO coming in the next couple of days is the Facebook IPO, everyone is buzzing about it, maybe just because everyone I know has a Facebook account and the talking heads are all in it like a bear in the honey jar. Facebook has majority of the social network clout in the Web 2.0 space, its is estimated that there are about 900 million account actively checking their accounts at least logged on 30 minutes in a day. Thats a lot of eyeballs on the Facebook webpage, thats is enormous in any account. Facebook seem to have all their eggs lined up to make a killing, talking heads claim a valuation of $100 billion. With that said, let me outline why your better off keeping it on cash or maybe investing in the forex market, I'll go into detail later on about that. But ler me go ahead and outline why Facebook isn't the best place to put your money on.
It's all hype, you know not to buy when even the bus driver is talking about buying Facebook stock. Just because you have a Facebook account means you should also buy their stock, this is number one reason why you should avoid this stock, this stock might rise in the IPO but i woudn't recommend holding on to it for the longterm.
Facebook has enormous fan following but has really no way of monetizing it through ads, this is the only way Facebook initial investors will make a killing is b dumping Facebook stock to the masses and leave them with a stock that is just as entertaining as the friend updates they are following on Facebook.
There is no way Facebook will be able to monetize future earnings, because the mobile space is accelerating, more and more people are using mobile devices to check their facebook account thus diminishing the company's chances of showing more ads, its the same fate with google.
Apps are the future, since mobile is more convenient and less ad intrusive, compared to browsers.
