“How much more valuable do you think Facebook is than Yahoo? Let’s say I gave you 1% of Facebook’s stock. How much of Yahoo would I have to give you to part with that share? 5%? 10%? More? (Or would you just move to Singapore and renounce your U.S. citizenship?)
What about Google stock? Would you make a 1% for 1% trade? What about 0.5% of Google for your 1% Facebook stake?
Well here’s what the stock market thinks: ”

I’ve stayed out of the $FB hype for the simple fact that I’m an Oracle, jk. But the FB platform doesn’t offer the information sharing capabilities of Twitter and while it’s fun to bs about work and the weekend or stalk your ex it’s not the best place to build professional relationships or future employment opportunities like LinkedIN. Also while everyone plays down the Google+ platform name another single platform that lets you share the same way you could on the original Myspace and do on FB currently, AND: Email, RSS Feeds, Store all of your Documents, Translate those docs, Shop online, etc (It goes on almost infinitely). So for this I find $GOOG as the long play in this space and if they integrate a Twitter type of client into their platform, or buy them for that matter, it is/will be the best platform around. So why not make the $FB play. There’s better places for my money.
All that and the fact I fucking hate that smug preppy looking Zuckerberg. lol
Funny thing about fuck-you money. When people get it, they quit, and Facebook is no exception.
That said, I’d rather have 1% of FB, GOOG, or YHOO (or 1% of any of the companies they acquired) than 100% of a company that failed to be acquired and ultimately fizzled into nothingness.
