I'm still not so sure about Facebook. Social media, while currently dominated by Facebook, could be knocked out in a year or two by some awesome start-up nobody will hear about for another 6 months. I'd stay away from any type of social media stock, not that I'm an expert or anything.

I really have no clue why Facebook has been valued as high as it is. Yes, it has a massive user base, but the fact of the matter is everyone uses it to keep in touch with people from school, family, or people they have met. I can't think of one person that has done anything through Facebook ads, the Facebook market, very few people I know participate in Facebook games like mafia wars and farmville (which seem to be dead fads at this point).

Honestly, everyone is looking at Facebook as having untapped potential, but I can tell you as a Facebook user that joined the site before it was really a business, the fact that it is now a publicly traded company holding private information about me, my family and friends with photos of us, makes it extremely unattractive and scary as shit. I know I am not the only one that feels that way and I think feelings like this displayed by its user base is going to be its downfall.

You're born, you take shit. You get out in the world, you take more shit. You climb a little higher, you take less shit. Till one day you're up in the rarefied atmosphere and you've forgotten what shit even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son.
