    Facebook IPO

    Facebook starts trading on the market tomorrow. Is anyone going to be buying? I think I would've if I could've got them at the IPO price, but obviously can't since I'm not a big shot.

    Re: Facebook IPO

    I will be buying. I've seen a lot of the IPO's that come out and go up..only to go down for a day or so below IPO then start their climb. However this will be a buy and hold and so I'll get it at whatever I can and hold till im a billionaire.

    Nope. Just have a feeling that something new will come along and supplant it.

    They are going to be buying everything on the interweb. Someday it will be your choice of the Google Network...Apple Network...and Facebook.

    Re: Facebook IPO

    I would be somewhat worried about GM pulling their advertisements from Facebook and the fact that they get like 1/10 the revenue of Google's advertising. Oh well, the huge traffic probably makes up for it.

    No one thing will usurp it, but it will be multiple things. Maybe dozens.

    How much bigger can Facebook get? By now 99% of people who want to be on it are already on it.

    Thats kind of how I feel. They have to be getting close to their ceiling.

    True. Luckily, my financial adviser is handling stuff like that for me, so who knows? Maybe I am buying.

    Plus, I haven't worked up the courage to ask my wife for more money for my Scottrade account.

    Google actually develops software. They are building a diverse company. I just dont see what Facebook is throwing out there. What is their ultimate goal?
